Overview

THE COURSE STRUCTURE BELOW ONLY APPLIES TO RE-ENROLLING STUDENTS WHO COMMENCED THEIR STUDIES PRIOR TO 2016.

Property is about ownership, management and occupation of land and buildings. It is concerned with the management of assets, people, processes and finances related to specific buildings and across the property industry. Just as the property industry embraces both buildings and commerce, so will students' studies in property, with subjects undertaken in everything from economics and finance, property valuation, construction, facility management to urban planning and law.

Careers and Further Study

Bachelor of Environments graduates with a Property major might obtain work in valuation, investment, development, portfolio management, property and facility management, corporate real estate and land economics. The Property major also provides a strong grounding to prepare you for further studies in the Master of Property. For more information on the Master of Property please visit the Melbourne School of Design web site: http://msd.unimelb.edu.au/

Intended learning outcomes

By the end of a three year Bachelor of Environments degree with a Property major, students will have developed a strong understanding of the processes and finances related to specific buildings and will have competence and knowledge across a wide range of property issues.
