The research-teaching nexus debate is a complex and often contentious one which has received a good deal of attention in the UK in recent years. Based on an international survey of built environment academics and practitioners this study explores the importance and relevance of research to Surveying undergraduate education. A key finding is that although the research process and outcomes can nourish undergraduate studies, they have a much greater impact upon postgraduate provision. There is a consensus amongst those surveyed that (UK) Research Assessment Exercise type research may have only marginal relevance when compared to case study, market-based or professional development type activity. Many respondents believe 'blue sky' research to be of limited use to undergraduate studies.
