This highly regarded programme prepares students for a career in planning and development, equipping them for roles that require skills in researching, preparing, negotiating and regulating development schemes, as well as creating policies and plans.
This programme focuses on planning as it engages with economic and property development processes, from the local to the global level. Its flexible approach allows students to concentrate on aspects of development planning relevant to their own interests and career aspirations (e.g. strategic, economic, environment, regeneration or rural). The vibrant learning environment provides opportunities to go on field trips, engage with local communities and work with industry partners.
