Property

Bachelor of Environments

The Property major focuses on developing an understanding of the ownership, development, management, feasibility, funding and investment, and occupation of land and buildings.

You will learn about contemporary planning issues, trends in the property discipline, and how the application of construction practices and structural design can add value to developments. The mix of disciplines that comprise this course are particularly targeted at industry needs, and have contributed to successful outcomes for our graduates.

Studies include the full range of skills and specialisations needed for a professional career in this fast-paced and exciting industry.

These include:

  • economics,
  • investment and finance
  • market research
  • feasibility
  • development
  • valuation and management
  • construction
  • urban planning and
  • law

The flexibility of our Bachelor of Environments course enables our students to combine additional studies in related disciplines such as international business, legal studies, information technology and systems, languages or the arts.
