Are you in year 12, at a school or college and considering a career in property? The Pathways to Property Summer School is now open to applications, and could support you to learn about the property industry through a variety of activities and experiences as well as about student life and higher education. The week-long Summer School takes place at Reading University, and all costs including accommodation, food, travel and activities are covered by the programme.
The programme is varied and covers key themes for the industry today, from sustainability to housing and regenerating cities. You’ll also go on site visits and campus tours, and participate in activities led by graduates and industry professionals to help build up a real in depth understanding.
There is also the opportunity for further work placements after the summer school, with British Land, a sponsor of the programme, being amongst past employers that previous local graduates have gone on to work for, as well as our suppliers.
