Undergraduate courses are for three years.

There are four undergraduate courses run by the Henley Business School of the University of Reading: -

  • BSc Real Estate (Rural)
  • BSc Investment and Finance in Property
  • BSc Real Estate with MSc or Diploma Urban Planning & Development

A postgraduate MSc Rural Land and Business Management course is also available.

The University of Reading has also a part-time two year version of its master’s course in Rural Land and Business Management which can be taken in conjunction with work. 

The course is aimed at those already working in the rural sector who want to improve their career prospects by further study on an RICS-accredited master’s course (contributing to their record for the RICS Rural APC) that will assist preparation for the CAAV examinations.  

It is designed to provide students with the specialist knowledge and skills they will need to further their careers, including economic, technological, legal and social concepts and principles.  It is to help develop a critical awareness of current problems and new insights with the exercise of initiative, sound judgement, and the ability to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations.

Those on the part-time course will study the same modules at the same time as the full-time students, including:

  • Introduction to agriculture and rural industries
  • Rural property law and valuation
  • Strategic rural asset management
  • Management case studies in rural surveying
  • Rural policy and planning

The course includes a dissertation which is to be completed over the summer in Year 2.

As a part-time course, this will be:

  • over two years instead of one
  • require attending the University for one or two days a week during the 20 teaching weeks over the autumn and spring terms. 

That may make this particularly suitable for those within travelling distance of Reading.
