Fellowship is a mark of distinction recognised by our members, professionals and the public as denoting the highest standards of success, achievement and expertise.

Who is it for?

Fellows are leaders in their field, people who have undertaken notable projects or made a special contribution to the profession. Only professional members who are major achievers in their careers may apply.

What are the benefits?

Joining a group of professionals who stand out in the eyes of their peers, clients and the public.

I consider the key benefit to being a Fellow is the recognition by RICS and the property industry of having demonstrated a level of skill, knowledge and experience which, in addition to recognising my own achievements, gives me a platform for assisting others.
