Real Estate Seminar 2015: Investment Day

The second Seminar Day organised by the Real Estate 'Team' in the Department of Real Estate and Construction took place on 21 April 2015. The Seminar Days have been organised for the undergraduate and postgraduate students studying real estate and offer the opportunity to attend a 'professional style' conference with a series of presentations from industry experts focused on a particular topic. Yesterday was 'Investment Day' and the day was hosted by Mike Patrick, Senior Lecturer in Real Estate and Nick French, Professor of Real Estate.
