Choo Li Min, BSc (Hons) in Real Estate (2019).

"Hello. My name is Choo Li Min and I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Real Estate in 2019.I’m currently working as a valuation executive for Nawawi Tie Leung Real Estate Consultant located in Kuala Lumpur....
The most interesting aspect of my job involves valuation of all properties for loan financing and financial reporting (FRS) purposes. What I found most beneficial to my career from the programme at UoRM was - “As a fresh graduate of University of Reading Malaysia, the periodical exposure to real estate practitioners (I.e. Malaysia local market players, field trip to Seoul, weekly talk etc arranged by Henley Business school, Faculty of Real Estate, to visiting lecturers’ teachings and transnational Internship experience in Jakarta have provided to me some eye-opening insights. As well as my fellow lecturers’ gracious effort, affects eternity; endless influences; inspirational; and a friend simultaneously. My good wishes for you, my fellow lecturers.” My advice to current and prospective students would be “a dream inside me, I am confident: they keep talking, you keep walking !”

Ashley Goh Qian Ying, BSc Real Estate graduate (2019), winner of the CBRE|WTW Student Award.

"My name is Ashley and I am working as a Transactional Executive in the Advisory & Transactional Services department of CBRE| WTW Johor....
The Real Estate programme offered at University of Reading Malaysia is very well-structured and it exposes students to broad range of real estate-related knowledge such as Management, Valuation, Town Planning, Property Laws, and Finance. The programme opens up abundant career opportunities as it is accredited by the Board of Valuers, Appraisers, Estate Agents and Property Managers Malaysia (BOVAEP), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, UK (RICS), the Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM), and the Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV).
The University of Reading Malaysia works closely with industrial players to make sure the syllabus is relevant to the dynamic nature of the real estate industry. Although the programme is taught based on the UK context, various industrial talks and seminars are organised by the lecturers to make sure students are familiar with the local context and get hands-on knowledge in this industry. Having prominent industrial professionals to give talks and sharing sessions to the students is also an excellent opportunity for students to engage with professional mentors or their future employers and to build networks within their profession.
In terms of the reality of work life, from my experience, the actual work life in the company is exactly what I expected it to be. The supportive working environment in CBRE|WTW allows everyone to have the opportunity to learn and grow in their career."
