What can I do with a degree in Property Development and Valuation Extension

Champion sustainable development

Use your skillset to develop commercial and residential dwellings that are environmentally sustainable and consider the current and future needs of communities.

Help meet housing demand

Housing demand in Australia is set to outpace supply, driving a need for experts who can develop new housing and successfully value property for individuals and businesses.

Become a certified practising valuer

Help clients get the best return on their property investment by conducting property valuations.



If you want to learn how property – one of the nation’s most critical assets – is developed and valued, this course is for you.

You’ll gain the same expertise as if studying Property Investment and Development, while extending your skillset into property valuation, commercial development and sustainability.

You'll learn about the role and the role property plays in our economy and society, covering fundamentals in property valuation, economics, finance, law, construction, sustainability, and investment analysis. As a result, you’ll be well equipped to accurately assess a property’s worth – a skill highly valued by credit lenders and developers.

Our accreditation through the Australian Property Institute and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors ensures you’re learning the most up-to-date skills required by industry.

You’ll gain hands-on experience with professional software, and engage with property experts through guest lectures, site visits and real-world projects. You’ll also have opportunities for internships throughout your course, including a three-week work placement in your final year with an Australian Property Institute recognised valuation firm.

This course is ideal for aspiring property valuers, investors, and developers. It’s a great choice if you’re a person with strong decision-making skills, or a real estate professional seeking to upskill.

Upon graduation, you'll be eligible to pursue a property valuer certification, enabling you to work independently or for banks or government bodies like Landgate. You could also pursue a career in property development, allowing you to shape the construction, sustainability and affordability of new dwellings.
