This study examined the perception of final year undergraduate students towards real estate education in Nigerian universities with the aim of assessing real estate education in Nigeria. The essence was to examine if the skills, knowledge and competencies gained by the real estate students match the requirements of the industry. The data collection instrument was a questionnaire survey distributed to a total number of 105 final year students. Sixty-Six (66) questionnaires were duly returned and used for the survey. Data collected was analysed by using a statistical tool, commonly known as Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). Frequency distributions/percentages and relative importance indices/ranking to give a clearer picture of the results obtained from the field survey. The study showed that students are of the opinion that there is absence of soft skills in real estate education which is a necessity in the industry. Proffered solutions such as adopting the discipline-based approach and mixed learning based approach were identified to ensure soft skills were incorporated into the curriculum. It is therefore recommended that more practical experience which largely includes soft skills should be incorporated to the real estate education to facilitate their performance.
