Course content

Transport touches almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives and our MSc Transport and Planning programme (recognised by the RTPI and CIHT) encourages you to address the challenges ahead for developing the transport systems of tomorrow.
Spanning the disciplines of transport analysis, economics and policy, you will acquire the knowledge and critical understanding to make a significant contribution to the development, scrutiny and management of transport and urban systems. After graduation, you will be well-placed to make your mark in the industry and help transform and innovate transport planning, improving the economic, social, health and environmental well-being of people and places.
You’ll receive a broad education with a focus on enabling you to:
  • Explain and demonstrate the principles and practice of transport scheme appraisal and evaluation.
  • Collect, retrieve, analyse and interpret data to better understand travel behaviour and aid in the development and assessment of transport policies.
  • Grasp the principles and key characteristics of transport planning models and related analysis techniques used in the development, design and assessment of transport policies, plans and schemes.
  • Comprehend the key aspects of sustainable travel options and their promotion to individual transport users to improve economic, social and environment sustainability.
  • Explore the policy and administrative frameworks within which transport schemes are developed, assessed, financed, monitored, and reviewed.
  • Examine the legal and regulatory frameworks within which transport planners work.
