About Rural Property Management at Harper Adams University

This degree is cognate with the Land Pathway through the RICS Assessment of Technical Competency leading to Associate RICS membership. In many respects it mirrors BSc REALM but has its own specialisms in utility wayleave and easement negotiations, and estate agency office practice.

Work placement 

Placement may involve working for a large firm such as Fisher German or a smaller local firm or on a traditional rural estate. Within these organisations, students will often specialise in one area such as residential lettings, pipeline claims, telecommunications or building repair and maintenance supervision.


During placement most students will have the opportunity to register for RICS Assessment of Technical Competency (ATC). The ATC requires students to undertake structured work experience, training and assessment before qualifying for associate RICS membership. The placement year usually counts towards this experience. Depending on the experience obtained, some students may be eligible for the final assessment for the ATC on graduation and others, a year after graduation, to become Assoc-RICSs. Routes from AssocRICS to MRICS. Once students have the AssocRICS qualification they may become MRICS by completing a further four years work and studying 90 credits from an accredited final year or postgraduate programme, before attending a RICS professional interview, which they must pass to become a chartered surveyor. Alternatively, BSc RPM?graduates achieving a 2:1 or greater may register on one of our accredited postgraduate REALM courses. Those who study part-time are able to register concurrently for the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) leading to MRICS.
