Professional recognition and course approval
Normally Graduate Diploma students wish to achieve professional recognition in New Zealand by the Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ) Registration Board to become a registered property manager, registered property consultant or registered property facilities manager. To ensure you take the correct courses you need to seek course advice from the Academic Coordinator who will help process your PINZ application.
We strongly recommend you contact the Academic Coordinator prior to commencing study so that you receive the correct course advice, information on achieving accreditation and preparatory materials.
How to prepare for these courses
There are no pre requisites for the Grad Dip Prop Man, though most students struggle in their first semester of study even with a good undergraduate degree.
You really need a good commerce undergraduate degree with some courses in economics and finance and high Excel skills to cope with the financial modelling. This applies especially in the property investment and valuation courses if you are starting in the 2nd Semester joining 'capstone' advanced 300 level classes. You will be joining third year students who have all the normal prerequisites. Some knowledge of valuation principles and practice is considered essential, hence the recommended preparation.
Before enrolling in this Diploma you must seek course advice from the Academic Coordinator, in person is preferred, so you can be advised as to what additional courses (to the eight required for graduation) you could take to acquire the knowledge and skills to be a successful student and professional in this discipline.
