The practice of estate management is influenced by processes developed over many years and worked out by a profession that has been established since 1975 by Decree No. 24 in Nigeria with all the strength and weaknesses inherent. The study examined the perception of estate management student about a career in the profession of Estate Surveying and Valuation. Estate management students of Covenant University students from 100 to 500 levels were adopted as population sample for the study. Structured questionnaires were analyzed and the simple descriptive statistics and mean item score were used for analysis. The outcome of the study shows that some of the students are not fully aware of the course- Estate Management but were compelled to study it. Some others willingly choose to study the course having heard about the prospect and some others just dabbled into it in a bid to avoid time wasting. One of the recommendations is that more orientation should be given to students about the different profession and its prospect so as to enhance their knowledge before venturing into them. It also recommended that there should be more interaction between the university system and the professional practice to enable students have better exposure of the real practice after graduation.
