    I'm not sure if anyone knows about this but... is Land Economy at Cambridge focused a lot on the environment. Obviously it features, but could I focus more on law and economics and not do a lot of environmental study? Because I assume that would be like geography, which I don't really like. Did anyone apply for Land Econ?

    It is good if you want to be a chartered surveyer, or anything environmental like that. Its a very professional based degree. Not theoretical like maths.

    This is from the website -
    Undergraduate study
    The main disciplines are law and economics, but with options in aspects of the environment, business finance and resource management. The degree leads to many career opportunities.

    Hey - a fellow potential Land Economist, u didnt by any chance apply to Girton college did you, well that’s where I applied.

    From what I know the first year covers a variety of topics from Law to economics and is supposed to give you a firm grounding in the basics of Land Economy.
    In the second and third years there is more emphasis on specialised topics.
    I think to get accreditation from the RCIS exams; you need to follow particular modules.
    I’m hoping that I can focus on property and like you, I am not too keen on Geography.
    If u want to get in touch my email is [email protected]
