Course summary

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. 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 the 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. Each year will offer increased opportunities to specialise in aspects of planning and real estate policy, management and evaluation. In the third year of study you will embark on a paid work placement with an organisation engaged with planning, environment, urban design and/or real estate to apply the conceptual, digital and communication skills you practice. BSc Planning and Real Estate is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), as well as a spatial qualification by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). To acquire full accreditation by the RTPI, you must also complete a specialist qualification, which can be achieved by transferring onto our four-year integrated master's course (five-years with professional placement). Manchester is a great place to study planning and real estate. It is a major UK city undergoing rapid urban change, which provides an ideal base for exploring urban development pressures and how these shape economic, social and environmental futures. The changes to the city mean that understanding how we finance and manage investment, and what this means for further development are critical factors in effective growth.The city is also ideally placed for you to learn about a wide variety of rural environments which have interesting implications for planning and real estate markets, including three spectacular National Parks, areas of intensive farming and impressive coastlines.
