The School of Real Estate and Land Management provides a focal point for commercial and rural property management teaching across the University and staff teach prospective professionals on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The School is also actively engaged with the surveying profession, including running the RICS/RAU Land Price Series.
