MSc Real Estate programmes at Reading: Student perspectives Watch
(Original post by imrt92)
MSc Real Estate Asset Management at Manchester or MSc Real Estate at Reading?
Tuition fees are vastly different, £8750 at Manchester and £16,500 at Reading respectively.
Are there any current MSc students at Reading who are able to provide some insight to their real estate course?
More about the University of Reading
I am currently on the MSc Real Estate course at Reading. The course is very well organised, with a large variety of modules to choose from. Not only is there the academic element but we also focus on the more practical side of surveying. With a large cohort it also means that you are exposed to many people that you may be working with as colleagues in the future which is fantastic.
The main reason why I chose Reading is not only for its top rated reputation but for its employability prospects. It is extremely competitive getting a job at one of the top real estate companies but Reading have a dedicated careers advisor to help you with any interview prep or help you may need. In the first couple of months we were also visiting London on a weekly basis to meet with potential employees which was great exposure.
I hope this helps. I'm afraid I do not know very much about the Manchester course to comment.
I received an offer yesterday to study the MSc Real Estate at Reading. I live in Trowbridge (Wiltshire), which is just under 2 hours away from Reading. I have read that the Msc Real Estate is taught at Henley Business School and at Whiteknights Campus - do you know which one is right? - as this will make a huge difference to my journey time. Also can you give me an idea of the amount of hours per week you are actually in university? When I was studying at Cardiff it was only 10 contact hours per week, but when I spoke to someone from Reading they informed it is a lot more intense than this.
