The growth of real estate investment internationally, and the opportunities for international investment, are key factors behind the transformation of the industry over the past thirty years.

The aim of this course is to develop your understanding of the context within which property markets operate around the world.

It will examine the market institutions and structures that underpin the development of investable international real estate markets.


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

  • explain the processes of international economic globalisation and the impact this has on property market development
  • assess institutional characteristics in different countries that impact on markets
  • categorise the characteristics behind mature and transparent real estate markets, and evaluate the role these play in market development
  • appraise the interaction between policy (planning, social inclusion and sustainability) and real estate markets.

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.
