Course content

Our International Spatial Planning MSc is an exciting and demanding course that is ideal if you want to work in spatial planning from an international perspective. It helps you translate academic and professional knowledge, understanding and skills in urban planning into a context suitable for a globalised economy and rapidly urbanising world.

The course seeks to engage you in the theoretical and practical context of planning in a broad range of countries. It helps prepare you for work as urban planning and development professional around the world.

For students from countries experiencing rapid economic development and urbanisation (with the physical and social challenges these produce), the course bridges the gap between the focused field of urban planning and the broader field of international development. It offers you the opportunity to relate the core learning directly to your own country's context, which is of particular value to international students.
