Entry requirements

Entrants are expected to have a good first degree, normally an Upper Second or First class honours degree (or its international equivalent) from a recognised University. With such a vocationally oriented programme however, all applicants are interviewed, and appropriate professional experience may additionally be taken into account. Whilst applications are welcome from students just about to graduate, applicants with relevant working experience post-graduation are particularly welcome.

Course content

With a burgeoning interest in the development and delivery of successful urban renaissance, the programme aims to present a coherent body of knowledge and skills in relation to the realisation of successful urban regeneration programmes and projects, and to provide students with a range of intellectual and professional skills for practice in urban regeneration and development in both public and private sectors (local authorities, regional development agencies, regeneration partnerships, regeneration consultancies, private developers).

The MA Urban Regeneration and Development is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) under their Planning and Development (P&D) specialism. It is also accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) as a specialist masters degree.
