Course overview

Property is functional space from a family home to a block of units, a suit of offices, a rural retreat or a skyscraper. Whatever the shape, size or style, there are property professionals involved at all stages of property development.

It is suited to people who are interested in residential and commercial property, enjoy networking and want to work in a varied, dynamic and international profession.

You will be engaged by experienced industry professionals and study in an industry-focused learning environment. You will study a number of disciplines such as economics, finance, law, construction, architecture, investment analysis, and valuation theory and practice.

In your final year, you will be assigned to a fully API-qualified mentor from a pool of real estate professionals in Western Australia for a three-week practical placement.

Completing this major can give you the necessary educational requirements to qualify for Australian Property Institute membership at the Certified Practising Valuer level, after an approved period of further industry training.

Property Valuation provides education and training in the property industry to meet accreditation requirements. It is offered as part of the Bachelor of Commerce.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.

All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.

Learn more about CSPs and whether you're eligible by visiting the Australian Government's StudyAssist website.
