The Guardian UK 300 is the largest and most comprehensive annual survey of student opinion on graduate careers and employers.

The top graduate employers for the property sector are listed in the table below. The top three employers remain the same as last year: Savills, Knight Frank and BNP Paribas Real Estate. Positions four to seven have all risen since last year (Grosvenor, JLL, Countryside Properties and Cushman & Wakefield) and British Land, Lambert Smith Hampton and Allsop each entered the property top ten this year in eighth, ninth and tenth place respectively.

Students interested in the property sector…

  • were most commonly studying architecture, building and planning; law; and geography and environmental science

  • expected to earn on average £31,855.*
