Career outcomes

"The theoretical framework of the Master of Property in conjunction with the practical implementation of professional work in the property industry provided me with synergies that helped to develop me as an individual and advance my career prospects. The opportunity for group work and information sharing between disciplines enhanced my interpersonal skills and ability to communicate with people from all different walks of life." Toby Wooldridge, Master of Property graduate, Coles Group
“I think I had always been fascinated by the way that humans interact with each other, and the way that communities form and prosper. When I started my undergraduate degree, I was exposed to a lot of urban planning content, and I realised that this great field existed that would allow me to explore both elements of human geography, and physical design and organisation. I chose to pursue the Master of Urban Planning to build on this knowledge, as well as to learn some of the more practical skills that would be required to work as an urban planner.” Claudia Lombard, Master of Urban Planning graduate, Tract Consultants
