Course Summary

On 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. Where better to study such a topic than the heart of London, one of the world’s most exciting cities, and a place that is constantly changing and evolving to meet the needs of its citizens? As the home of many global players in the development industry, you’ll benefit from amazing networking and placement opportunities and access to inspiring guest lecturers and visits to real projects.

Employability

There is currently a national shortage of professional planners and a demand from both the public and private sector after over a decade of public sector austerity. There is also demand for planners on the international scene. As the world struggles with climate change, urbanisation, population growth and changing work and living patterns, it will be crucial to our futures to plan for these eventualities if we are to avoid major environment and social disturbances.

Employment prospects are excellent especially in London and the South East of England. Successful planning students may find jobs in central government, local government, non-governmental organisations, housing associations and quangos. Given our extensive links with public, private and voluntary sector employers we find that employers often approach us first seeking suitably qualified and motivated applicants.
