Summer School at the University of Reading

There is an opportunity for Year 12 students to attend a four day, fully funded Summer School at the University of Reading to learn about a career in property.

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? The Pathways to Property Summer School allows students the chance to explore the property industry in more depth. 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.

Date: 2nd -5th July 2024
Venue: University of Reading
Who: Year 12 students from state schools/colleges considering a career in property – either through University or through an apprenticeship
Cost: Nothing! All food, accommodation and travel costs are covered

During the Summer School:

• Learn about the industry and the careers available
• Attend taster lectures
• Get involved in a group project and debate
• Go on site visits
• Meet new people
• Experience life on a University campus

How to Apply: Applications close 2nd June. Visit the website for an application form.

At the end of the week, if students are keen to learn more about property they can complete a funded work experience placement over October half term, have access to our e-mentoring programme, and if they choose to apply to study Real Estate and Planning at any UK University they can apply for a bursary up to £30,000 over three years. In addition students that apply to study Real Estate at Reading University will be guaranteed a conditional contextual offer and be given £2500 on enrolment.
