MSc Plannning


Course Description

This fast-track conversion course is a one year full-time / two year part-time professionally accredited postgraduate planning programme that is fully recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and is also accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors under their Planning and Development (P&D) specialism.

The programme is popular with students who would like to undertake a Planning Masters Degree that will, after the successful completion of their studies and a period of working in practice, enable them to work in the planning and development professions in the UK. It has also proven popular with international students where RTPI accreditation is recognised by the equivalent planning body in their native country. In recent years, the programme has attracted students from a range of countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Barbados and India.

On successful completion of the programme students will have gained an understanding of the full range of professional skills relevant for planning practice. Graduates will also possess specialist skills relevant to a chosen specialism.

Special features

An overseas field visit is an integral part of the programme. The cost of the visit is largely covered by the course fee, but students in recent years have also been asked to contribute around £200 towards the costs of the trip, depending on the venue. Recent locations have included Toronto, Barcelona and Amsterdam.

The programme also includes a module that introduces students to the excitement of working within a professional, 'real world' context on a 'live' consultancy project. Working with industrial partners, students will be asked to complete a piece of work on an area of planning, urban regeneration, or environmental management - depending on their chosen specialism - to a standard that is expected and demanded in the planning, environmental management or development professions. This core module is highly regarded by employers and students alike.
