Command the property market

The world is becoming more and more urbanised. Investments in land, infrastructure, offices, housing, retail and recreation facilities are increasing across the globe.

Property developers work to get the best results for all involved. They make sure developments are safe, productive, sustainable, high-quality and profitable.

What will you do?

Our Master of Property is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. It draws on the expertise of multiple University faculties. You will:

  • take core courses in finance, project management, law, development and construction
  • build skills through development and design simulations
  • travel overseas for a course on International Property
  • share a studio with the Master of Architecture and Master of Planning students
  • complete a major supervised project on property issues.

Where could it take you?

You might assess the feasibility of a multi-storey tower in Dubai. You could work with landlords and tenants managing retail centres in Sydney. Perhaps you’ll assess the redevelopment potential of properties or advise sponsors on how best to invest.
