Changing face of property students : an analysis of UWS property students from 1994 to 2003

Eves, Chris (2004) Changing face of property students : an analysis of UWS property students from 1994 to 2003. In Proceedings of the 10th Annual Conference of Pacific Rim Real Estate Soiety, Pacific Rim Real Estate Soiety, Bangkok.


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 ten 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 the annual survey and the profile of all first year students who commenced their studies in the Bachelor of Business (Property Economics) degree [formerly Bachelor of Commerce (Property Economics) and Bachelor of Commerce (Land Economy)] for years commencing 1994 to 2003.
