About the course

This Urban Design master's prepares you to contribute towards an improvement in the quality of the built environment.

We've structured the course around three main urban projects. Each explores key contemporary issues in urban design:

  • urban regeneration
  • housing
  • public space and engagement

Theoretical and practical lectures, seminars and workshops underpin these projects. The course is primarily studio based. There is an emphasis on independent learning. You're encouraged to cultivate a studio atmosphere within your year group. You'll learn from each other's diverse disciplinary backgrounds.

Student Profile

Brian Glodney

I chose to study Urban Design in Newcastle because it has one of the top programmes in the UK. I enjoy meeting different people in a foreign country and adjusting to a new lifestyle, Newcastle is an easy place to do that.
I can now apply to jobs in both Britain and the States; the opportunities are endless as I will have a degree from both the US and the UK. The international experience I have had at Newcastle really helps with big firms.
