Course content

This programme aims to help you acquire a broad foundation of knowledge in spatial and city planning, from which more detailed or specialist study can be developed. The aim of the programme is to relate academic thinking and research at the forefront of spatial planning to your own experiences, whether at work or in other endeavours.

  • There is significant input from industry in our teaching programme, including teaching on some courses, guest lectures and seminars. There are also informal opportunities to meet people from industry at open events and recruitment presentations.
  • If you satisfy the progression requirements, this qualification provides an entrance route to the MSc City Planning.
  • You can gain this qualification in a manner that works best with your professional commitments, either through one year of full-time study or on a modular basis over two or more years.
  • An optional field trip to London will provide you with an insight into the complexities of city planning in a World City. Past trips have included visits to The Shard, King’s Cross, Battersea Power Station and a number of grassroot projects that focus on community development.
