"Thank you very much for putting together this online work experience course. Although I only had a minor interest in property development, I now see it as a viable career that combines my favourite subjects in school (Geography, Statistics and Business). This course has given me valuable insight into all of the different roles that make up this industry!" - 6th Form Student
