But the sector is facing challenges: shifting demographics, changing learner requirements and ever-present budgetary pressures are driving a renewed focus on the property these institutions use.

Advising on everything from valuations, acquisitions, investments and disposals to business rates, planning and development, building surveying and project management, we understand the sensitivities involved and the need for innovative answers to diverse issues.
We understand the challenges you face and we have the solutions you need.
