Professional recognition

Professionally accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors when studied with Finance or Marketing.

Completing my degree at Curtin was an easy decision because it is the only university with a specialised property school. I was fortunate enough to secure employment in the industry whilst in my final year of university, allowing me to put theory into practise. The biggest benefit of this was to experience how the theory being taught at university is put into practise in the real world.
