Who is Fellowship for?

Fellowship represents the pinnacle of success in our industries and provides further recognition of your achievements. It is also an opportunity to contribute to the profession by working alongside RICS to ensure we're recognised worldwide as the leading body that sets and enforces professional standards and offers access to the most sought after professional status. 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.
