Course summary


This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area.

The economics of providing high-quality accommodation has become a global issue in the 21st Century. Owner-occupation is declining and governments around the world are withdrawing from the housing sector as private sector involvement continues to grow. In the UK, Labour/Conservative governments alike have addressed the need for institutional investment with measures/structures aimed at encouraging investment within real estate. However, institutional investment remains comparatively low, with buy-to-let being a fractured/cottage industry. Real Estate Investment Trust is a specialist area within Abertay, with academic staff having considerable professional experience within the asset management industry. Industry links are vital for relevant research within the sector, and Abertay is fortunate to employ staff who are active members of both the Society of Property Forecasters and are CFA charter holders.

Abertay’s vibrant research culture encourages areas of cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary working, and draws from accountancy, economics and law. We are a member of the SGSSS network, a collaboration of Scottish Universities whose goal it is to provide world-leading postgraduate education and research.

Our research programmes will prepare you for a rewarding career as an academic and researcher, as well as opening up opportunities for a diverse range of careers outside of academia.

Our research degrees

You have the option of studying an MSc by Research, an MPhil or a PhD.

When deciding which degree is right for you, you should consider the level of commitment required, the duration, cost and your career aspirations.

That being said, our research degrees are flexible. You can begin an MSc or an MPhil and then seek to transfer to a PhD without having to start your project all over again. You can also switch from full-time to part-time study, and vice versa.
