Real Estate Seminar Day 2014

The Real Estate 'Team' in the Department of Real Estate and Construction has organised a series of Seminar Days this year for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying real estate. The aim of these sessions is to give the students the opportunity to attend a 'professional style' conference with a series of presentations from industry experts that are focused on a particular topic.

The first Seminar Day took place on 25 November 2014 and focused on Valuation. As it was a profession-style conference there was also an appropriate dress code (smart).

A few photos from the day and some links to the topics covered follow (photos by the Ed):
