Financial support for your studies
Funding for MSc Real Estate & Planning students 2014/15
Reading Real Estate Foundation (RREF) offers a range of financial support to Real Estate & Planning students
in the form of bursaries and grants. These bursaries are funded each year by our generous alumni, corporate
donors and fundraising events. We also administer a number of named bursaries which offer both financial
assistance and, in some cases, the added benefit of contact with and support from the individual or
organisation funding them.
Bursaries do not have to be repaid and can contribute to meeting living and course costs.
