The College became eventually UCEM and I wish it another century of helping students in the Property Industry.

““Chase down those opportunities; whenever and wherever they present themselves. None of us know what’s coming next. We just need to be alive to the opportunities; open minded and prepared to grab them with both hands.”
Dame Alison Nimmo DBE, CEO, The Crown Estate and winner of the UCEM Property Award 2018
“The more you put into it, the more you get out of it. It is not just about getting good grades but about expanding the knowledge base, and contacts, that you will rely on throughout your future careers,”
“I have always had the highest admiration for UCEM students. To undertake a full degree, distant taught, requires a level of self-discipline that I would struggle to muster, particularly when juggling all the other demands in their lives. However, it instils an approach to education current students should foster for life. The next 100 years is only going to change more than ever. An open mind towards education and training will be a valuable tool.”
It’s worked well for 100 years so don’t change everything. Some of the good bits are worth keeping.
It is wonderful to see UCEM celebrate it’s centenary, particularly given some of the challenges I know it has gone through, particularly over the past 20 years or so. It is now a very different entity to the one I worked in and is going from strength-to-strength. Wish UCEM, its staff and students, all the best as it begins its second century.
Forever young and energetic, UCEM Happy 100th Birthday!

Develop a thirst for knowledge and ensure you are always on some course or another – it will never be wasted and is an excellent investment for the future. The internet offers boundless opportunities.
Happy Birthday UCEM! Even as a distance learner I feel part of a very exclusive family and I am so proud to have been a student.
Anticipation and preparation help make the most of life’s opportunities.
Always look up to meet the challenge. UCEM can lend you a helping hand.

Plan! Make sure you plan your time. I used to use Excel with the dates of exams and assignments on and make sure I gave myself plenty of time! Also make full use of forums. They are there to give you direct access to the experts.
Congratulations UCEM, here’s to the next 100 years – by which time the conservationists of tomorrow will be preserving what we build today!
Happy birthday UCEM, here’s to another 100 years.
Stick with it, it’s worth it.
