Course summary

Course description

MSc Urban Regeneration and Development focuses on the regeneration and development of cities.

It will provide you with a range of intellectual and professional skills in urban regeneration and development in both public and private sectors, including local authorities and central government bodies, local regeneration partnerships, regeneration consultancies and private developers.

Aims

You will:

identify urban problems and build the knowledge base to devise appropriate solutions;
receive excellent preparation for professional practice in urban development and regeneration;
get an international perspective through overseas fieldwork.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment methods are largely individually based, but may also involve some elements of group-working and submission.

Overall, you are continuously assessed via a range of methods, including essays and report writing, topic papers and critical reviews, project portfolios, and assessed workshop presentations.

A 15,000-word dissertation on an approved topic is discussed and chosen at the beginning of the second semester and a suitable supervisor allocated.

Initial work focuses upon an overview of the chosen topic, a literature review, and the design of the methodology to be adopted.

During the latter part of the second semester and over the summer, you will undertake the necessary research and analysis, culminating in the writing of your dissertation.

Career opportunities

Tackling skills deficiencies in the field, identified by various papers and reviews, our course meets the needs of a job market in central and local government, regeneration partnerships, consultancies, and non-governmental organisations.

It can lead to a professional career as a chartered surveyor or, with an appropriate undergraduate degree, a planning professional.

More generally, Planning and Environmental Management graduates are popular with employers, particularly in consultancy, where the ability to analyse and propose policies and implement strategies is vital. After London, Manchester hosts the largest number of planning and environmental consultancies in the UK.
