One-year intensive Master programme UG's Master of Science in Real Estate Studies (MSc. RES) offers a unique one-year intensive educational programme in real estate to prepare you to become a leader in the real estate industry.

UG's MSc. RES offers 10 ECTS in optional courses where you are able to specialize in your field of interest (e.g. finance, economics, geography, planning, management, law).

Students have an option to pursue internships or other opportunities. However, there is little room in our programme for intensive 3 or 6-months internships as the programme is only one-year. Therefore, we highly encourage our students to combine an internship with thesis writing at a renowned firm in the field of real estate or other related fields that impact the real estate industry. Students who want to pursue intensive internships during the Master programme without combining it with thesis writing extend their programme, on average, with 6 months. Students also have an option to study abroad, but the same dilemmas often arise if one cannot combine it with thesis writing.

    Real Estate Studies has provided a strong and stable basis for a successful career in the Real Estate business

    I completed the master in Real Estate Studies at the University of Groningen in January of 2014. Before starting my master I studied Real Estate Management at the Hanzehogeschool. After my studies I started working at the international Real Estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield, I've been employed here for the last five years.

    During the master programme in Real Estate Studies you will learn to approach real estate and the environment from an academic perspective. What I found interesting was learning to approach the practice of real estate from a theoretical viewpoint. Doing this allows you to find explanations for how we deal with questions regarding real etate issues. As a result of this approach you can see that many topics can be reduced to a number of basic theories which are still very relevant in practice when entering the real estate work force as a professional.

    After graduating in January 2014, I immediately started working at the taxation department of Cushman & Wakefield in Amsterdam. I started out as a trainee to learn more about the necessary job skills. Next to this, personal development was an important aspect of the training. After 2,5 years I was ready to start at a more commercial function, so I switched to the Office Agency team at Cushman & Wakefield in which I advise occupants and owners when renting, buying and selling office real estate.

    Looking back at the previous five years, I can conclude that I have strongly developed myself as a real estate professional regarding both job specific as well as personal skills. A personal highlight was winning the Real Estate Young Talent Award 2018. This is a yearly award in which five young professionals are nominated by an expert jury. After participating in public debates, writing blogs and gathering online votes I was the happy winner of this prize.

    All in all this master programme has provided a strong and stable basis for a successful career in the Real Estate business.
