Pathways to Property Summer School

The Summer School is a fully funded, 4 day residential programme at the University of Reading for Year 12 students. During the week, students will attend taster lectures, go on site visits, take part in a group project and debate, learn to network with key employers in the industry and experience life on a University campus. All individuals will be provided free accommodation and food and their travel expenses will be covered. At the end of the week, if they are keen to learn more about property they can complete a funded work experience placement over October half term, have access to our e-mentoring programme, and if they choose to apply to study a property related degree, can apply for a bursary of £30,000 over three years. To date, over 800 students have attended the Summer School and 24% of these have chosen to pursue a career in property – either through studying a property related degree at University or completing a property related apprenticeship.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE SUMMER SCHOOL ARE NOW OPEN! (until 21 May 2022). The Summer School will take place from 25 – 28 July at Henley Business School, University of Reading. For more information and to apply click here
