BSc Planning and Real Estate with Professional Placement is a four-year degree, which will provide you with the core academic and professional training in planning and real estate. You will consider the issues faced by professionals in dealing with the planning, development and management of all aspects of our built and natural environments. Effective planning, development and management of our towns, cities and countryside is crucial in an age when governments and societies all over the world are struggling to deliver sustainable development. Big data, real estate finance, spatial analysis, policy formation, environmental sustainability and public engagement are all key to this process and form the core principles of the programme. Understanding and engaging with the problems facing the communities and places in which we live, work and play is at the heart of what we do in the department of Planning and Environmental Management at The University of Manchester. The course is ideal if you:
- are passionate about the factors that influence society and want to learn about economic, political and socio-environmental systems, and how to manage these interactions sustainably;
- want to take a vocationally led degree that equips you with a wide range of hands-on technical, design, decision-making and communication skills that make you highly employable;
- want to diversify your learning outside of lectures, enjoying a variety of field visits, work placement opportunities, working for 'real-world clients'; and the option to study abroad for a semester.
- The curriculum of Years 1, 2 and 4 will consider the issues faced by professionals in dealing with the planning, development and management of all aspects of our built and natural environments.
