Course summary

Planning and investing in the spaces where we live and work has never been so important. An accredited MSc from one of the UK’s top planning schools can help you make a positive impact.

Course description

Accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI)

The largest and fastest-growing cities in the world are in low and middle-income countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. This course explores the urban development and planning challenges faced by governments and people in these regions and provides you with the analytical and practical tools to address them.

The course uses cutting-edge theories in both urban and development studies to engage with changes in the global south, including: the globalisation of production and consumption, rapid urbanisation, environmental change, and the spread of new forms of governance.

Optional modules include a team-based student consultancy project for an external client in the field of international urban development. There’s also a field class in the global south. In 2018, students visited Chennai in India.

The course is suitable for recent graduates and those with professional experience. It’s excellent preparation for careers (or further research) in international development, urban governance, planning and environmental policy focused on the global south.
