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 20 – 23 July 2020 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 apply through our website by 15 May 2020
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 Real Estate and Planning at the University of Reading they will receive a Welcome Bursary, alongside the opportunity to apply for a bursary up to £30,000 over the three year undergraduate programme.
