Structure

Content

The module is designed to provide a quick introduction to a broad range of economic concepts and methods of valuation, so that you acquire the ability to be able to read property markets and understand the related data before manipulating the different methods of valuation.

In other words, you are encouraged to recognise that the process of valuation does not occur in a vacuum; the economic context is everything!

Learning and Teaching

With an online course you have the flexibility to fit your studies around personal and professional commitments, with access to our learning resources any time and from anywhere in the world. Studying while you work also provides valuable opportunities to apply what you have learned directly to your role. We use the latest online learning technology to make your distance learning experience as effective and rewarding as our traditionally taught courses.

You'll have access to recorded lectures from leading academics in the real estate management industry.

Alongside these recorded lectures, you'll be able to attend 11 one-hour live webinar weekly workshops, via 'Blackboard Collaborate'. This comprehensive learning platform provides your entire course content, and puts you in contact with your tutor and fellow students.

Assessment

We assess your work through a variety of coursework assignments, including essays, reports, surveys and presentations. We also encourage you to do 'formative work' to prepare for assessment. This does not count towards final marks, but the feedback you receive helps improve your performance.
