Course summary

This course offers you a proven route to rewarding careers within the management of land, property and business in the countryside. This highly regarded course in rural land management can do the same for you, equipping you with the knowledge, confidence and skills to make your mark while helping owners and occupiers of rural property to maximise their assets. Located in the heart of England’s rural landscape, and recognised worldwide for a history of success, it’s no wonder that thousands of students choose to transform their passion for the countryside into a vocation by studying at the RAU. To complement what you learn on-campus and at our arable and livestock farms, you will learn from visits to commercial properties and rural estates, ensuring that your academic credentials are matched by the experiential knowledge that property owners and developers are looking for.

This rural land management degree is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and, typically, graduates enter employment in rural practice surveying to undertake the two-year Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and qualify as chartered surveyors. Many graduates also seek qualification as Fellows of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) at the same time as completing the APC.

Our graduates have gone on to work for the likes of the National Trust and other national, international and regional landowners, county councils and utility companies. Others have secured work with private estates and chartered surveyors. You can expect to find work in any number of the areas connected to rural property management, including: Agency; Tax and finance; Letting of land and property; Compensation claims; Farm business planning and diversification; Management of woodlands; Rural planning; Property development; Planning and environmental consultancy; Research and education; Leisure management; Rural conservation and investment management.
