Course content

LJMU's Urban Design MA enables you to explore your creative potential to change the landscape of cities and urban spaces and our experience within them.
  • Join a strong research-focussed academic community
  • Develop your work in state-of-the-art workspaces and facilities within the RIBA award-winning John Lennon Art and Design Building
  • Apply for the prestigious Susan Cotton Travel bursary, the Michael Pugh Thomas and Julia Carter Preston Legacy study awards
In a world of rapidly rising and migrating urban populations, there is a palpable need for smarter, more inclusive approaches to city planning, adaptation and spatial design.

Study Urban Design in a resurgent, UNESCO recognised city of cultural significance and advance your skills to create spaces that solve modern problems in cross-cultural contexts. This programme has strong links with the RIBA North and the Liverpool Biennial which, every two years, delivers an international programme of exhibitions and projects that lead to a rediscovery of the city.
