The course will provide you with the planning knowledge, understanding and viewpoints required for Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) accreditation, plus a specialised understanding of planning for climate change issues.
Modules taught by the School of Architecture Planning and Landscape are complemented by key areas of law and energy in other schools.

This course offers a career path for students with first degrees in environment or engineering to move into town planning. There is still need in this area, particularly for planners with the knowledge and skills to act on climate change issues.
