Deakin’s popular Graduate Diploma of Property has been designed to suit demand for and the needs of two types of graduates:
- graduates from a property and real estate background who require further expertise in property-related principles, including property development, valuation and other property-related areas
- graduates who have completed an undergraduate degree and are seeking a professional degree in property.
The course will provide students with the opportunity to develop and refine their core professional skills, particularly related to the fields of property development and valuation. Students will develop an important understanding of who the various stakeholders in the property and real estate market are, and how they collaborate to co-ordinate, organise, develop and manage property in broader society.
Students in the course are 'engaged' with the material, the lecturers and other students via the use of cutting edge technology which can be accessed from any global location, although students have the same experience as an on campus student.
The course brings together a range of built environment disciplines from sustainable construction to property management to provide a broad perspective on issues of relevant international significance, while case studies provide opportunity for critical reflection and analysis.
A focus on sustainability and its economic, social and environmental underpinnings in the broad property market giving the course particular significance and relevance.
Relevance to current and proposed ‘real life’ initiatives in the context of case study research is an important part of the course. Students will gain specialist skills through practical experience and benefit from cutting-edge research and close cooperation with the property industry.
Students will graduate equipped with a high level understanding of the theoretical, policy, evaluative and research frameworks that underpin the property and real estate profession.
