Our Urban Design MA, PGDip is aimed at built environment professionals who want to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in the field of urban design. It equips you to contribute towards an improvement in the quality of the built environment.

The course is structured around three main design projects. Each explores key contemporary issues in urban design:
-Urban regeneration
-Housing
-Public space and engagement

These projects are underpinned by theoretical and practical lectures, seminars and workshops. The course is primarily studio based and there is an emphasis on independent learning. You are encouraged to cultivate a studio atmosphere within your year group where you will benefit from each other's diverse disciplinary backgrounds.

Building on the strengths of the multidisciplinarity of its cohort, the course complements existing skills and experience in built environment related disciplines with new skills in understanding and designing in physical, social and economic contexts.

The course can be studied as a nine month Diploma route from Town Planning. It can later be upgraded to an MA through studying the Thesis Only route, involving a dissertation or Design Thesis. The Diploma can be undertaken by students from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds, including:
-Architecture
-Planning
-Landscape architecture
-Property development
-Art
-Community engagement

Delivery

The programme is structured around three main design projects that each explore key contemporary issues in urban design, currently: urban regeneration; housing; and public space/engagement.
