Pathways to Property Summer School
Every day we are influenced by the built environment around us – shops, offices, industrial buildings, houses and the surrounding countryside all have an impact on the way we live. Did you ever wonder how these properties are developed, whether the buildings going up in our cities are sustainable or how much they are worth? Join us on the Pathways to Property Summer School to discover where a career in property could take you.
The Pathways to Property Summer School takes place from 19 - 22 July 2021 for Year 12 students from state schools/colleges who want to learn more about a career in property.
Taking place over 4 days on campus at Henley Business School, University of Reading*, this fully funded, residential Summer School gives you the opportunity to explore the world of property and the careers within it. With a mix of taster lectures, site visits, a group project, careers fair and social activities, you will get to experience university life, whilst also exploring key themes in property such as sustainability, regeneration and globalisation. And with such a huge variety of roles, from a building surveyor or town planner to a sustainability consultant or financial analyst, there is a role to suit any skillset or personality.
APPLICATIONS FOR THE SUMMER SCHOOL ARE NOW OPEN!
*Please note, we are carefully monitoring the changing conditions surrounding COVID-19. Whilst we will make every effort to deliver the Pathways to Property Summer School as an in-person residential event, the safety of the young people taking part is our primary concern. Therefore, if it is not safe to deliver the event in-person in 2021, the Summer School will still take place, but will be moved online. We will keep all applicants informed when a final decision is made as to whether the event will take place online or in person.
After the Summer School, participants will get the opportunity to apply for a funded work experience placement in a leading real estate firm alongside further guidance through an e-mentoring programme. If a Summer School participant chooses to apply to study a property related degree they will be eligible to apply for a bursary up to £30,000 over three years of study
