University of Liverpool in London

Course Introduction

As a student, you will be engaged in exploring the dynamic connections between real estate valuation and the character of the built environment in one of the most rapidly changing property markets in the UK. Internationally recognised as a centre for industries related to property development and architecture, London provides an ideal test bed for your studies; it is arguably the ideal city within which to study the production of the built environment from both an aesthetic and a commercial perspective. The programme draws upon a range of expertise in Architecture and Urban Planning although no prior training in either is a pre'requisite. By the completion of the course you will have covered modules in property development, design skills and project management that assume no subject specific background knowledge.
