Entry requirements

All students must have 2:2/Bachelor degree equivalent to UK Second Class Honours Lower Division or above in a planning degree accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute. Applicants with other degrees are not eligible to study this course but could consider the MA Planning Policy and Practice.

The PgDip Town Planning is the final year of the Royal Town Planning Institute accredited undergraduate entry course, and therefore is only available to students who have already studied an accredited planning degree. Students from other universities may have to study a special programme of modules and transfers between universities are possible but will need to be agreed in advance.

Course content

At the centre of towns and cities regeneration, it is the duty of planners to take into account the views of business and local communities. It is a broad area of work that can require many different skills and others the option of specialisation – be it protecting the historical environment or urban design.

PgDip/MA Town Planning programmes are accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute. The courses enhance student's employability in planning, property development and research roles in the public and private sectors. This is through focusing not only on the planning system but on broader themes that influence the economic, environmental and social contexts in which we live. The course enables you to study an area of spatial planning in some depth as many of modules are within a specialist area (urban design, urban regeneration or environmental planning).
