Course content

This part-time course is designed to provide the planning skills and knowledge necessary to supplement appropriate specialist Master’s degrees in order to satisfy the requirements of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).

If you have completed a specialised Master’s degree in planning, this will allow you to ‘top up’ your planning knowledge with the spatial planning component of an RTPI-accredited education, making you eligible (after two years of planning practice) for professional membership of the RTPI.

It is specifically for those who have not already taken a 'conversion' Master’s degree to gain access to the UK planning profession.

Distinctive features:

This part-time programme is available to study across either one or two days a week, allowing you to work almost full-time, but still gain a qualification that can provide access to the UK planning profession.

You will be taught alongside others doing a professional 'conversion' degree and special assistance is provided to help you manage your work.

Structure

The programme consists of 90 credits, gained by completing four twenty credit modules and one ten credit module. All modules are compulsory.

The course can be completed in eight months with five modules, consisting of 90 credits in all, spread over two semesters, or over three years taking one module per year, one day a week, or an intermediate combination.

Core modules:

Site Planning, Design & Development
Live Project
Planning and Real Estate
Planning: Nature, Purpose and Instruments
The Reflective Practitioner

Teaching

A variety of teaching methods are used. There is an emphasis on interaction between students and teachers.

Assessment

Summative assessment is by coursework. There will be a variety of assessed tasks including reports, presentations, and posters. Most assessed work is individual; some is group work.

Career Prospects

Completing this course satisfies the initial professional educational requirements of the Royal Town Planning Institute and opens the door to being considered for all mainstream planning posts in the public and private sector in the UK (at an appropriate level depending upon experience).
