For current students and past graduates CULS offers a unique network of property professionals that can be approached for careers advice, introductions and mentoring.
Each Autumn the Society runs a Careers in Property Event in Cambridge for students of the undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The event is organised by the Society’s Honorary Careers Officer and supported by Department of Land Economy and the Cambridge University Careers Service. Details of the last event can be found on the Past Events page.
The annual Careers in Property Event has been running for nearly 50 years, informing students about the range of careers in the property sector and introducing them to potential recruiters in time for the graduate recruitment closing dates. A property career is multi-disciplined and has a wide range of entry points from investment banks, asset management houses, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, development companies, retailers, as well as the more traditionally surveying route. Details of forthcoming careers events can be found on the Future Events page.
Useful information about property careers is available on these external websites:
