Being introduced to RICS during my first year at university opened up the opportunity for me to complete my working placement year in Sydney in 2011 when opportunities were scarce in the UK. My placement year along with obtaining my MRICS status after university, paved the way for the career I have today. The global passport RICS offers really is invaluable.
