Welcome to Week 3

In the final week you'll focus on the key skills required for a career in real estate and planning and how you can develop them.
Welcome to the final week of the Pathways to Property course. We hope you enjoyed last week’s material and the reflective exercise that you did on future changes and key property skills. This week, we’ll be focusing on these skills and thinking about how you can develop them, ready for a career in real estate and planning. You’ll be discussing in your groups, and hearing from those in industry about how and why they got into property. You’ll explore the best way to follow them into a career in real estate and planning, and give you the opportunity to secure a place on our Pathways to Property Summer School.
To tell you a bit more about myself, I’ve worked in residential, retail offices, and now, student housing. I’ve had the opportunity to live across the world. And I got into property through work experience, through my University. If all of that excites you, then watch out for the next steps.

Welcome to Week 3. In this video Paddy and Emma introduce the topics you will cover in the final week of the course.

Hear from our course team

Our educators/mentors will be joining the course discussions between 28 June 2021 – 18 July 2021 and during that time will try and answer as many of your questions as possible, although they won’t be able to reply to everyone.


Don’t forget the A-Z glossary which includes definitions of key property-related words and phrases.
