The Real Estate Management and Development degree is designed to build an understanding of the dynamics of the property market - including a sound knowledge of valuation and appraisal techniques. You'll also focus on the processes taking place within property transactions, development projects and investment funding.
Students tend to come from the real estate industry, or following a first degree in the likes of real estate, property development, planning, geography, economics or finance. This course benefits from the expertise of research-active and industry-minded staff. Plus, with strong professional links and a focus on up-to-date industry-relevant content, graduates are highly sought-after in the property industry.
The full-time course starts in mid September and lasts one year. The course can also be taken part-time over two years, or online via Independent Distance Learning (IDL).
The course has accreditation from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Recognition of Prior Learning
Heriot-Watt University is committed to providing opportunities to applicants who have a wide range of prior experiences through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Prior learning at postgraduate level is normally recognised to gain exemption from individual courses within a programme based on an existing academic qualification. Note that the prior learning must have been rated at the level of the courses for which RPL is sought, yet credits from an award already held by an applicant can only contribute to a higher award in the same discipline, e.g. from PG Diploma to MSc. If you believe that you qualify for RPL, please contact the Learning & Teaching Support Team via email@example.com, who will guide you through the RPL application procedure.
The school will only consider students' requests for RPL at the time of application for their programme of study.
English language requirements
If English is not the applicant's first language a minimum of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent is required with all elements passed at 6.0 or above.
Applicants who have previously successfully completed programmes delivered in the medium of English language may be considered and will be required to provide documentary evidence of this. Examples would be secondary school education or undergraduate degree programme. A minimum of at least one year of full time study (or equivalent) in the medium of English language will be required.
We offer a range of English language courses to help you meet the English language requirement prior to starting your masters programme:
