With specialisms in economic development and environmental management, our Town Planning MSc will provide you with the understanding, skills and experience to practise professionally as a town and country planner or surveying professional.

Through an exploration of the issues which affect the built environment, you will be equipped to critically evaluate how urban development is regulated to bring about the best social and economic outcomes.

This course is fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Our delivery is made richer as a result of our direct engagement with the RTPI and the RICS, along with the Town and Country Planning Association and the Royal Geographic Society, as well as with agencies, local authorities, the UK government and EU advisory bodies.

This courses mixes theory and practice so that you'll learn to think and act both locally and globally. You'll also learn how to apply your knowledge in the real world.

The programme benefits from an international and environmentally conscious curriculum that promotes critical thinking, community engagement, partnership building and leadership. It is unique for its outstanding location by the sea, the nearby South Downs and a 180-degree catchment area.
