Course content

The MSc Urban Planning programme offers a unique combination of specialist study in urban planning, complemented by a range of optional modules in property development and design, drawing upon a range of expertise across the University of Liverpool in Urban Planning and Architecture. We can offer you a unique degree of flexibility.

You can focus on the topic(s) of most interest to you, specialising in property development and/or urban design, and on graduation, you will have completed modules that cover urban planning in theory and in practice, and a choice of urban design, architecture or property development. This flexible approach, drawing on expertise across multiple disciplines will stand you well in your planning career.

Internationally recognised as a centre for industries related to property development and architecture, London provides an ideal test bed for your studies; it is arguably the ideal city within which to study the production of the built environment from both an aesthetic and a commercial perspective.

The programme equips graduates with the multidisciplinary skills that are key to the production of the built environment and are, as a consequence, much sought after by employers.
