The Real Estate course at Kingston University is an innovative degree designed primarily for people working or wanting to work in the real estate sector either in the UK or beyond who are seeking to gain a high-level head start. The reflective practitioner at junior or middle-management level can study individual modules to meet CPD requirements or to enhance their academic qualifications.


The Real Estate course at Kingston University will enable you to create key research and systematic aptitudes alongside your practical competencies. Since there is such a great amount of flexibility within the curriculum, you can extend your insight within focused areas of investment, asset management or development.

You will study six modules. These have been intended to guarantee that they line up with the core competencies of the RICS, yet at the same time enabling you to pursue your particular interests through your research project. The project culminates in the unique master's conference, and you'll also get the opportunity to take part in an international residential field trip. 

This programme is delivered full time over one year or part-time over two academic years commencing in September. It is taught through a series of short intensive teaching blocks of three days (usually from Thursday to Saturday inclusive). Each module comprises two study blocks.

The modules allow students to pursue individual interests through the design and execution of an independent research project. This culminates in the unique Kingston Surveying and Planning Masters Conference. There is also a week-long residential field study trip to a major international city.

Graduate destinations

The largest proportion of our full time students go on to the graduate entry schemes of major firms of chartered surveyors in the UK, going through the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence to become qualified professionals. 

Many of our successful alumni and current part time students work in the real estate sector for firms such as Knight Frank, CBRE, PNB Paribas, Jones Lang LaSalle, DTZ, Cushman and Wakefield, the Crown Estate, Network Rail, British Land, Land Securities and other international and national firms, public bodies and private companies.
