Course summary

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.
