Why Urban Planning? Our Urban Planning degree will equip you with the knowledge and skills to help address the urban challenges of the 21st century, in a rapidly changing global context. With input from city, town, rural and strategic planners from a range of local, national and international organisations, our course has been designed to meet the contemporary and future needs of industry and society. These strong links with industry will also give you valuable opportunities to prepare for your graduate career, such as awards, intern positions, live challenges, guest lectures and employability skills workshops. You’ll study the factors and forces shaping the urban environment, the role that planning can play in developing and renewing urban areas, and reconciling competing and conflicting interests. Focusing on a range of scales and contexts, you’ll learn to understand, plan and design for functional, aesthetic and sustainable spaces. You’ll work in a super studio environment, participating in projects with students and academics from a range of related disciplines, including architecture, interior architecture and quantity surveying. This unique learning approach will give you the sort of collaboration, design and innovation experience you’ll need to succeed in your future professional role. Why University of Gloucestershire?
