This course provides the higher education and skills needed by a modern manager of rural land and enterprise. REALM uses rural assets economically to achieve clear business objectives.
It is an ideal course for aspiring rural practice chartered surveyors, and those with an interest in managing the countryside in a business context, including countryside and environmental management, estate management, agriculture and diversification.
You will be assessed partly on coursework and applied work such as solving real-life client problems. The final year dissertation will allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of a chosen topic.
The course is approved by the RICS and concentrates on the rural pathway but students can follow residential, commercial or other routes.
RICS candidates must go on to complete the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), which involves two years of structured work experience, training and assessment.
The placement year usually counts as the first APC year; the second is undertaken after graduation.
