Teaching is delivered through seminars, lectures and workshops. The course makes full of our blended learning platform, Moodle. Online tutorials will be made available, allowing you to enhance your skills in self-managing your studies. This supports the more traditional teaching methods.

Teaching is supplemented by site visits and speakers from professional practice.

Why study this degree at UCL?

This programme argues that planning is key to dealing with urban problems and opportunities presented by rapid urbanisation in the Global South, but that its potential cannot be harnessed without a critical understanding of the processes that generate urban change in specific contexts.

The programme seeks to equip students with the capacity to develop critical diagnoses of urban issues, as a basis for developing propositional responses within the framework of socially, spatially and environmentally just urban governance.

The programme promotes a deeper understanding of community-led and partnership-based urban development planning. Students also benefit from the Development Planning Unit's longstanding and geographically exhaustive alumni and partner network.

While on this course, you take part in real-life case studies and projects, and develop important professional skills required in urban regeneration roles, such as project valuation and leadership skills. You also develop an essential conceptual understanding of regeneration policy and practice.

This course has been running for two decades and attracts a wide range of students including:
-Graduates looking for a vocational foundation in urban regeneration.
-Practitioners who want to broaden their knowledge and understanding through academic study.

The award is accredited by several key sector professional institutes including the Chartered Institute of Housing, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Royal Town Planning Institute. The course is designed to help you further your academic understanding having experienced practice, or prepare for a role in responding to the challenges facing the UK and the world including: urban decline and success, urban segregation, urban competitiveness, urban sustainability, urban management.

These challenges require more than restoring and rebuilding the physical fabric of cities and their heritage. They need:
-A new local and regional economic base to replace the one that has been lost; the protection and improvement of environments and places.
-The restoration of hope to communities that have been impacted by socioeconomic change.
-Education and training to assist people in a fast changing world of work.

These are big challenges requiring solutions and responses at all geographical scales, from neighbourhood to supra-national. They are challenges that require 'out of the box' thinking, intellectual rigour, ability to collaborate across groups and sectors, and an understanding of the contributions from disciplines like: economics, political science, geography, sociology, surveying, urban design, urban planning, finance and management.

It is this complexity combined with necessity that makes the regeneration field so exciting. This course offers a good balance of theoretical and practical debates and we constantly update it to remain at the forefront of new ideas and developments. You are immersed in the real world of practice, taking part in many real-life case studies and projects. You are also involved in theoretical discussion to consider practical regeneration solutions.

The course concentrates on gaining professional skills for regeneration and knowledge in:
-Regeneration policy.
-Planning and development process.
-Economic regeneration.
-Leading regeneration.
-Social regeneration.
-Alternative approaches to regeneration.

There is an optional module where you choose between an international field study week, or a practice-based consultancy project. We also offer most modules on this course as stand-alone short courses.
