Student Profile(s)

Nia Blank (PhD in City and Regional Planning)

"I enjoyed the MSc Course, felt that it provided a thorough introduction to city and regional planning and, to my surprise, emerged with a distinction. I decided to stay in the School for my PhD because it is well respected and because it is both large and friendly and the staff have a wide diversity of interests and backgrounds."


Stevie Upton (Regeneration)

I was initially attracted to the School of City and Regional Planning because of its excellent research rating, but when I came to Cardiff I was struck by the high level of engagement between the academic staff and their students. So much so, in fact, that after completing my MSc I stayed on for a year as a researcher, and am now studying for a PhD in the School.
