This course is a one year full-time / two year part-time professional accredited postgraduate planning programme that is fully recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). The programme aims to provide students with an understanding of the full range of professional skills relevant for planning and urban design practice in an international context.
On successful completion of the programme students will have gained an understanding of the full range of professional skills relevant for planning and urban design practice.
An overseas field visit is an optional part of the programme, if students choose to undertake the relevant optional course unit: International Planning (Field Visit). The cost of the visit is partly covered by the course fee, but students in recent years have also been asked to contribute around £200 towards the cost of the trip, depending on the venue. Recent fieldtrip locations have included Barcelona, Amsterdam, Belfast, Dublin and Toronto.
