Course Additional Entry

Preferably an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or higher) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of equivalent standing is required. There is no particular subject requirement as the course provides an 'initial' planning and real estate education for graduates with cognate or non'cognate degrees. Where candidates fail to meet the standard requirement (they hold a degree of a lower classification), the department will take into account professional experience when considering the application. Applicants who do not hold an upper 2nd class degree may, in exceptional cases, be admitted to the programme if they are able to demonstrate considerable senior'level professional experience in planning real estate or a related field.
