Property and valuation education : an analysis of UWS property students from 1994 to 2006
Eves, Chris (2006) Property and valuation education : an analysis of UWS property students from 1994 to 2006. In International Real Estate Research Symposium (IRERS), April 2006, Kuala Lumpur. (Unpublished)
The valuation and property is an evolving industry and the participants within the industry are also changing. This change is due to improved technology and construction, global nature of business today, professional standards, legal and accounting issues and environmental matters.
Throughout this change in the property industry, there has also been significant change in the structure and content of tertiary property courses in Australia.
Over the past thirteen years each first year cohort commencing study in the property program at the University of Western Sydney have been surveyed in relation to their background, reasons for course selection and job expectations.
This paper will review this annual survey and the profile of all first year students who commenced their studies in the Bachelor of Business (Property) degree [formerly Bachelor of Commerce (Property Economics) and Bachelor of Commerce (Land Economy)] for years commencing 1994 to 2006.
The paper will also provide a detailed analysis of the type of student entering the property industry and their exposure to the valuation and property sectors prior to commencing their studies.
