Introduction:

This course gives you an understanding of real estate development practice.

It includes an introduction to the development process (from inception to disposal) and the skills required for the simulation and application of planning and development appraisal.


The aim of the course is to help you develop skills in real estate development that are relevant to a career as a specialist planning and development surveyor.

It'll introduce you to the development process in sourcing and analysing land, and how to acquire that land with consideration to the law, due diligence and contracts.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • examine and appraise the stages of a development
  • review the application of each stage
  • assess alternative acquisition methods
  • analyse reasoned arguments when delivering a development
  • prepare and evaluate development appraisals
  • apply the skills and processes required to acquire development land.

A CPD certificate will be issued upon successful completion of a course.

Passing the assessed element (an exam or coursework) can also contribute credit towards a postgraduate award. All candidates seeking credit will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. If you wish to receive credit you must mention this at the time of application, or with your tutor at the earliest opportunity.
