The education issue

Oliver Parsons

Editor of Modus (RICS)

The profession is facing a demographic timebomb. With 25% of members reaching retirement age in the next 10 years, and immediate skills shortages in areas such as quantity surveying, teaching the next generation of surveyors has never been more important or urgent.

We ask how effective are today’s teaching methods? In this month’s cover feature, we examine just how well equipped today’s graduates are for a career in the built environment.

Elsewhere in this edition:

  • We investigate how universities are becoming major players in large-scale urban development
  • Five industry experts give their views on the key skills they think graduates will need
  • In India we catch up with the first wave of graduates from the RICS School of Built Environment
  • A look at the work of the RICS Research Trust
