Daniel Dutton, a first year student from Oxford Brookes’ Real Estate Management course, has won a prestigious student essay award.

The Corenet Student Essay Award is an annual competition which has been running for seven years and is open to all undergraduates on real estate courses. The winning entrant receives £1000.

Daniel’s essay focused on the tax issues companies face when choosing whether to own or lease property and was this week published in Estates Gazette magazine.

The Award was presented at the CoreNet Global UK Corporate Real Estate Awards Dinner earlier this month and was attended by many of the leading property professionals in Europe.

The event was hosted by BBC presenter Jeremy Vine and raised over £5,000 for CRASH, the construction and property industry charity for the homeless.

Daniel said: "I am delighted to have won the award as most of the previous winners had been third year students. I was up against some stiff competition from Cass Business School and Reading and I hope, that by winning, this reflects positively on the quality of the Real Estate course here at Oxford Brookes. The £1000 more than compensates for the long hours spent researching and writing the essay!"
