Course content

Visit the Institute for Transport Studies at our Masters Open Days.

If you are an ambitious social science, engineering or mathematics graduate, the internationally-recognised Transport Planning course will equip you with the tools to help address global challenges such as climate change mitigation and reduction through the development of safe and efficient city transport networks and mass public transport.

97% of our graduates find employment in a professional or managerial role, or continue with further studies.*

This ranges from transport consultancies and operating companies, through to planning departments, international agencies and academic research.

For those already in the profession, this course is seen in the industry as the passport to recognition by professional bodies.

Be taught by academics with an international reputation whose research sets industry standards, on a course that has been designed in close collaboration with industry. This includes policy, travel behaviour, modelling, data analysis, land use planning, and public transport planning and management using research and evidence from around the world.

Use research models and tools developed by our staff that set industry standards around the world.

A degree in Transport Planning will not only provide you with a deeper understanding of these analytical and predictive tools, but also gives you:

  • Hands on experience of collecting and evaluating data: the key to good planning
  • Expertise in sustainable spatial analysis
  • Deep insights into human travel behaviour to ensure plans are successfully implemented.

Experience what it is like to be part of a project team working across disciplinary boundaries within the transport sector. Through this, gain insights into how planning, economics, environmental science, modelling and engineering can work together to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges. This industry-inspired approach will enable you to apply your knowledge to real-world issues in the field.

Your colleagues will be among the best and brightest from Latin America to the Far East, from Africa to Europe and the UK. Together you will learn planning techniques that will help you develop transport networks that are founded on robust evidence, sustainable and equitable social principles, state-of-the-art modeling, accurate data analysis, and a profound understanding of human psychology.

ITS – the global institute teaching the transport leaders of tomorrow.

We have redesigned our suites of courses following close consultation with Industry and academia.

With a strong focus on industry needs, our degrees will prepare you for employment in your chosen field. They will also address the multi-disciplinary nature of transport – enabling you to make effective decisions for clients, employers and society.

And to experience what it’s really like to work in the transport sector, collaborate with a project team of students from our other degrees through our new Transport Integrated Project module.

Research environment

The Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) was established as the UK’s first multi-disciplinary transport department, and we continue to lead the field with our research.

Our reputation allows us to invest in world-class facilities, such as the University of Leeds Driving Simulator – one of the most sophisticated in any university in the world, allowing us to research driver behaviour in controlled lab conditions. We also have access to a variety of specialist software tools including those we’ve developed in-house such as SATURN, PLUTO, DRACULA, MARS and KonSULT.

Other Study Options

This programme is available part time, allowing you to combine study with other commitments. You can work to fund your studies, or gain a new qualification without giving up an existing job. We aim to be flexible in helping you to put together a part-time course structure that meets your academic goals while recognising the constraints on your study time.

You can also study this subject at Postgraduate Diploma level, part time or full time, or at Postgraduate Certificate level with our PGCert in Transport Studies.

Accreditation

This programme is recognised by the major professional bodies in the transport sector. It fulfils the educational requirements for membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT UK) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and provides a pathway towards the Transport Planning Professional (TPP) qualification.
