Spatial Planning and Development (MSc)


Course Description

The MSc Spatial Planning and Development is the ideal starting point for taking on the professional challenges of making liveable, prosperous places. You will develop core planning knowledge and skills, professional judgement and the specialist skills necessary to make you employable with a range of organisations.

The course is underpinned by a recognition that planning is undertaken in diverse, and sometimes unjust, societies, and that objectives and approaches to planning can be subjects of debate and struggle. The course will provide you with the sensitivity and ability to form independent judgements on these ethical, political and professional matters.

While its focus is on planning in developed capitalist societies, especially the UK/Europe, its understanding of planning is comparative, and the skills taught are applicable in many planning contexts.



Distinctive features

The skills and knowledge acquired through this course are of direct relevance to planning roles in public, private and voluntary sectors.
You will have the opportunity to work on projects for 'real life' clients.
This course is a combined planning course and is itself fully recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). The course provides the full RTPI educational requirement, so that successful completion of the MSc with the necessary RTPI practice requirements allows direct membership entry to the Institute.
It is also accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), allowing completion of the educational requirement for RICS membership.

(Student Profile)

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."

(Student Profile)

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.
