Student Profile(s)

Emily Ball

The main reason I enjoyed the course was due to the diversity of the course- academically AND practically; giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in a wide range of planning and development themes. The course included a wealth of modules including property economics, planning law, issues in housing, valuation and ethics in planning and development- all knowledge and skills which can be applied in future employment. Most importantly, the course allowed the opportunity for me to follow the strands of planning and development I was most interested in- and for this reason, the most rewarding part of my course was my dissertation. This gave me the opportunity to be creative and have the freedom to challenge gaps in research that needed to be explored. It was reassuring that the department staff were always helpful and supportive and encouraged new avenues of research enquiry that arose through the duration of the course and reaffirmed my passion for research into housing and regeneration.
