15 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: Students studying this module will be introduced to the five methods of valuation that form the basis for working in the profession. Basic financial maths will be introduced and applied using client-related scenarios. Lectures will provide introductory examples and students will be able to practice using weekly problem-solving tasks and tutorials/help-sessions. Linked to the lectures, professional employability skills will be further developed through the coursework, which focuses on providing advice to a client through the production of a valuation report. This will also require students to consider the ethical dimensions of professional surveying practice and the rules of professional conduct.
