Course summary

This course provides the higher education and skills needed by a modern manager of rural land and enterprise. REALM uses rural assets economically to achieve clear business objectives. It is an ideal course for aspiring rural practice chartered surveyors, and those with an interest in managing the countryside in a business context, and in estate management, agriculture, diversification, sustainability and renewable energy. REALM graduates will be prepared to progress to Registered Valuer Status and are more likely to be employed in the provision of valuations, professional services and in some instances, auctioneering services.

Work placement

Placement will give you invaluable experience in your chosen area of work. It may be working with a national firm such as Carter Jonas, Savills, Strutt and Parker, Smiths Gore, or with a local firm such as Fisher German, Halls, Berry’s or Balfours.


Accredited by: Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This degree course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for the Rural Surveying Pathway.
