We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
See whats happening on the ground with the department of Planning and Architecture. The department is one of the biggest departments of planning and architecture in the UK, situated in a large, well-resourced and multi-disciplinary faculty, which continues to grow to meet new challenges in education and research. Its unique and innovative approaches to teaching and learning bring together architecture, planning and transport in a wide range of courses for full time and part time students, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
All its courses are accredited by the relevant professional bodies, including the ARB, RIBA, RTPI and ILT, and graduates have an excellent record of obtaining employment when they finish, assisted by the extensive links with practice, including work placements which are integrated into the courses.
We have a long-established reputation for enabling professional development in the disciplines covered within the Department. More specifically:
•We offer a range of short courses covering planning and architecture topics, related topics in spatial planning, construction, built environment law, air quality policies and practice and more.
•We lead on the delivery of an annual Planning Law and Policy Conference
•We offer a variety of programmes aimed at those in work who want to qualify in the field of planning as mid-career professionals
•We offer consultancy and advisory services
•From day one, our students are developed to become professionals through the provision of real life projects throughout their studies
We hold regular meetings with practitioners of architecture, planning and transport where education and practice come together for a lively exchange of views about the relationship between the two.
We have a long experience of distance learning courses in planning. We run and manage the only distance learning course in the UK for students wanting to become qualified planners, known as the Joint Distance Learning MA in Town and Country Planning, which is operated in partnership with a number of other UK universities.
