Architecture, Planning and Landscape - MA

Course Description

This course allows you to develop a broader critical understanding of the urban built environment. It is highly flexible, allowing you to choose from a wide variety of modules to suit your skills and interests.

The course combines taught and research elements, and offers a particularly wide range of choices for specialisation, drawing on the wide variety of postgraduate modules available within the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape.

There are only two compulsory modules on the course, giving you the flexibility to choose from a wide range of modules to suit your needs and interests. The opportunity to take modules with a very broad international theme makes this course extremely attractive to international students, offering the chance to express your learning in relation to your own country.

The course focuses on the more theoretical elements of planning and architecture but also offers some opportunity to undertake a small amount of design studio work.

This MA provides a grounding for students considering a PhD in architecture, planning or landscape, or those who wish to add a range of planning skills to an existing professional qualification in another discipline. It is relevant for anyone wishing to work in urban redevelopment or regeneration. It enhances the understanding and skills of those who are currently professional Urban Designers, Planners or Architects.


The learning environment is informal and friendly and the approach to teaching offers a mix of theoretical and practical modules. We place strong emphasis on team and individual project work, allowing you to put your learning into practice. An optional field trip to a country in Europe or Asia provides valuable practical project experience. The field trip is not included in the cost of the course (field trip costs are between £500 - 1000 for up to 2 weeks).


The School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape has excellent studio teaching facilities and our research suite provides designated space and equipment for each postgraduate researcher. Our facilities include:
-Exhibition spaces
-Print room
-Seminar rooms
-IT suites
