We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Planning develop the skills necessary to make important decisions concerning the development and management of urban and rural spaces. This can range from improving the safety and accessibility of major cities to safeguarding vital greenbelt land for future generations.
These qualifications may be taught or research-based and many are also accredited by relevant professional bodies.
Postgraduate programmes in this subject area can open the door to a wide range of careers. All have the opportunity to make an important impact on local communities and their people as well as on wildlife and natural resources.
A Masters focussing on Town Planning might lead to work designing new city spaces, regenerating old ones or coming up with strategic solutions to help tackle urban homelessness. A Masters specialising in Country Planning might open the door to a career in estate or environmental management, helping sustain rural properties and agriculture or preserve natural habitats.
Some of these qualifications will be recognised by bodies such as the UK’s Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) or Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), allowing you to work in regulated professions associated with your postgraduate degree.
