This programme trains you how to approach and understand the issues related to architecture and the cities. You learn how to use theoretical, historical and experimental approaches to architecture and cities of today.
Launched in September 2009, this new Masters programme offered by the Global Urban Research Centre (GURC) aims to provide students with an understanding of cutting edge conceptual and operational debates in global urban development theory and practice, and to equip them with specialist skills to identify sustainable urban development planning solutions in specific contexts. Directed by Caroline Moser and Alfredo Stein, the course brings together a team which draws on expertise from GURC staff, as well as from the Institute for Development Policy and Management (IDPM) and the Planning, Geography and Architecture disciplines of the School of Environment and Development (SED).
Manchester Metropolitan University - Manchester School of Architecture
Taking an international perspective, this programme explores innovative approaches to design and intervention in the city, investigating relationships between built form, space, culture, developmental processes and sustainability, within an interdisciplinary, project based dialogue.Over 50% of the World's six billion people now live in cities. By 2050 this will have passed 80%; the future is urban.
Kingston University - Architecture and Landscape
The context within which architecture is created has changed significantly in recent years, as have the ways in which architecture is practised. If you would like to sharpen your existing skills, develop the new skills and strategies necessary to keep up to date in the complex and diverse arena of architectural practice, this course is ideal.
This course offers a conversion route into the professional discipline of landscape architecture for students with a first degree in a different subject. The course is accredited by the Landscape Institute (LI) - the professional body for landscape architecture in the UK and successful completion of this course followed by the Postgraduate Diploma will make you eligible for Licentiate membership of the LI.The course is designed around four modules, two of which are project-based and two lecture-based.
Humanity is rapidly approaching the limits to growth of its ecological footprint. In 2050, there will be over 9 billion people living on the planet, with diminishing fossil fuel resources and increasing global temperatures.

Full chartered status is gained following completion of the LI's Professional Practice Examination after a further two years in practice.
This professional practice course is the concluding element of the School's full-time and part-time courses in architecture. Lectures are delivered at a level of ordinary competence and as such are promoted to and attended by local practitioners as part of their individual programmes of CPD.The course is presented by a range of external speakers, often specialists in their own fields, in four blocks of two days.
The programme enables the development of an understanding of the theoretical, technical and professional issues informing contemporary architectural practice, focusing on the contemporary city, a laboratory for the exploration of possible forms of architectural production. The programme explores the limits of contemporary practice and engages in cross disciplinary dialogue and practice.The programme is driven by the School's research agenda.
