Course Testimonies

BSc Real Estate Testimonial by Graduate Louise Binks

Louise Binks|CBRE London

I took A levels in Geography, History and English and particularly enjoyed the City Management module on the human geography course. Visiting Reading, I was very impressed by the Open Day, REP’s high rankings in the league tables and their industry connections. I was convinced that it was the place I'd like to spend the next three years of my life.

The friends that I made at Reading were what really shaped my University experience and moving to London to start work was made easier by the network of friends I had built at Reading. But University wasn't ALL about the social side and I really enjoyed the course. The lecturers were all very friendly people with a genuine passion for what they do and the course was very hands on which helped to develop the practical skill set needed in the real estate industry. My first 6 months at work have flown by and I’ve already been involved in some very exciting projects and been given real responsibility.

BSc Real Estate Testimonial by Graduate Freddie Clifford

Freddie Clifford|Deloitte, Dubai

I really love working abroad and I would fully recommend it - the lifestyle is great and the opportunities to travel and broaden your experience can be extensive. Additionally, you are likely to be exposed to a variety of international clients and professionals you might not encounter in your home country - particularly at an early stage in your career - it has been a really valuable learning experience.

I have a great network of graduates and professionals from Reading; property is a very sociable profession and the network of contacts you have is one of your most valuable assets. I also still keep in touch with my industry mentor (a scheme I found really helpful, particularly whilst applying for graduate positions).

BSc Real Estate Testimony by Sanjay Bremakumar

Sanjay Bremakumar|Development Manager Almacantar

When I began looking I was only aware of a few other universities that offered a course in real estate, but the pedigree associated with Reading in the surveying world is second to none. I remember enjoying the fact that the work was not repetitive and that it was manageable.

The modules were incredibly useful and relevant to what I do now. I grasped the Investment Finance modules with not too much difficulty but really struggled on the Planning side - ironically I now have at least 3 planning meetings per week! It just goes to show how your interests and strengths can change.
