However, the skills, knowledge and experience you have acquired during your degree, work experience and extracurricular activities can also offer opportunities beyond these sectors.

Many employers in the sector welcome applications by graduates from any degree background. If your degree is not accredited by the RICS you will need to take a conversion course, which you can do via full-time study or part-time study while you are working. The conversion course can be done prior to or at the same time as your APC. Some employers may be willing to help with conversion course fees.
