RREF Industry Links

A large part of the role of RREF is to initiate, develop and facilitate strong relations between the School of Real Estate & Planning's students and academic staff, its alumni and the property industry, both in the UK and internationally. Of course individual relationships exist throughout all parts of the University to the property industry, be they through research projects, executive education, as suppliers or graduate employers. RREF endeavours to track these contacts on the University's alumni and corporate databases to improve communications and opportunities.

Our Corporate Patrons are our core industry links whose annual sponsorship helps to sustain the running of our mentoring programme, bursaries and career development activities. We offer our Corporate Patrons the exclusive opportunity to take part in the Evening Lecture Series in the autumn term and give them priority position at the annual RREF Careers Fair.

We also have a number of connections to other firms via our alumni and through the graduate recruitment process. The importance of the industry's input to the School and RREF, both for the benefit of students and businesses, is recognised on both sides.
