Course content

Urban design involves shaping the physical setting for life in cities. This course provides a practical preparation for professionals entering urban design practice. It gives you an opportunity to study urban design at postgraduate level, without the need to commit to the full MA programme. It also gives practitioners in the urban environment the necessary basic skills in urban design to enable government to deliver its vision of an 'urban renaissance'.

The course recognises that busy planners, landscape architects, architects, highway engineers and surveyors might not have the time or resources to commit to a part-time Masters course. Attendance has therefore been tailored to fit the demands of active professionals without compromising the course's educational objectives. On completion many students opt to transfer credit and join the MA/Diploma course.
