BSc Real Estate Management: Bristol 2018

The students outside the Premier Inn (where they stayed for the field trip)

This year (on 19 February), the third year students on the BSc Real Estate Management headed off to Bristol for the annual PPT (Professional Practice Test) residential visit. The visit provides the students with an opportunity to study a local property market (in a location away from the south-east) and to apply all aspects of the real estate management subject disciplines to locally based case study problem solving. Thanks to Albert Cao and David Shiers for the photos.

And so to Bristol...Bristol is a city straddling the River Avon in the southwest of England with a prosperous maritime history. Amongst (many) other things, Bristol is home to the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge and (was home) to its equally famous engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It is also home to Bristol Blue, a great harbourside and some rather famous street art (and Banksy). Take a look a the red links to find out a bit more.

On the first day, the students started with a visit to The Mall, Cribbs Causeway, a shopping centre managed by Intu, where they went on a walking tour of the site and listened to a talk on the development from Greg Wilson (from Intu). After lunch the students visited Lakeshore, a residential development by Urban Splash...which has been in the local news recently. In the evening they attended a presentation about the Retail Market in Bristol and were given the coursework briefing, before going out for a group meal.

On the second day, the students listened to a presentation about the Office Market in Bristol...

...and were given a guided tour of the commercial areas in Bristol

The next two days were spent working in groups, researching sites and preparing project presentations for the PPT vivas which were held on the final day. And then back to Oxford.
