Course summary

Do you want to directly shape a better future? Then Urban Environmental Planning is for you. With this degree, you’ll develop the skills you need to design the needs of coming generations, turning your dreams of how the future should look into a reality. Learn how geography, society and sustainability intersect in town planning from our expert faculty, as well as from inspiring guest lecturers. Study in the heart of London, one of the world’s most exciting cities and one that’s constantly evolving to meet its citizens’ needs. Plus, benefit from visits to real projects in Cornwall and another European city to see it in action. There is currently a national shortage of professional planners and an unsatisfied demand from both the public and private sector after over a decade of public sector austerity - you’ll graduate with the expertise and experience to jump right in.
