Mr Dom Fearon

Senior Lecturer

Department: Architecture and Built Environment

Dom Fearon studied BSc(Hons) Planning and Development Surveying at Northumbria University before training and qualifying as a commercial property surveyor (RICS) in Newcastle upon Tyne and Cumbria.


Whilst working as a chartered surveyor I enjoyed my experience in both the public and private sector managing a large variety of land and commercial property portfolios of private clients, local government and police authorities.

Since joining Northumbria University in 2006 as a lecturer I have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice and Learning (PCAPL) and have had many roles such as Professional Placement (in employment) Tutor and Programme Leader for Real Estate Foundation and Distance Learning Degree programmes.

I currently teach on the undergraduate, postgraduate and International Real Estate degree programmes. I also have a role in our specialist Surveying (Minerals) MSc via distance learning.

BSc (Hons), Professional and now Academic Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, PG Certificate in Academic Practice and Learning (PCAPL). I am currently pursuing membership of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

Teaching Interests: I deliver valuation, property development appraisal and asset management modules throughout all degree programmes. I particularly enjoy teaching on the annual London Study Visit and the Project Assessments using ‘live’ property and involving students working directly with local companies and property professionals.

Research Interests: I am currently undertaking research on alternative ways of evaluating land in upland and woodland areas in the  north of England with the aim of getting a research grant from the RICS.

Scholarly Interests: I have recently applied via the university international office (and Erasmus+) to engage in an exchange visit to explore new ways to improve and develop our teaching and learning methods via European university partnerships.
