We have 6 University College London, Development Planning Unit Masters Degrees

The Development Planning Unit conducts world-leading research and postgraduate teaching that helps to build the capacity of national governments, local authorities, NGOs, aid agencies and businesses working towards socially just and sustainable development in the global south. We are part of The Bartlett: UCL's global faculty of the built environment.

The central purpose of the dpu is to strengthen the professional and institutional capacity of governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to deal with the wide range of issues that are emerging at all levels. The dpu's multi-disciplinary and multi-national staff offer specialised courses both in London and abroad for the staff of central government departments, local authorities, NGOs and the private sector. These courses are supported by international agencies as well as by national and provincial governments.

We believe in a just world in which men and women are equally able to choose, plan and manage their own lives and communities, and to influence local, national and global development in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

Our mission is to build the capacity of professionals and institutions to design and implement innovative, sustainable and inclusive strategies at the local, national and global levels, that enable those people who are generally excluded from decision-making by poverty or their social and cultural identity, to play a full and rewarding role in their own development.

In this sense the DPU:

Challenges orthodox development agendas in its teaching and training in London and throughout the world;

Explores and tests enabling, participatory and gender aware approaches to development through action oriented research;

Promotes the formation of strategic partnerships for the integrated and inclusive management of cities and development through institutional advice and consultancy;

Supports the networking of individuals, community organisations, NGOs, and public sector institutions which share the DPU vision.
