Course summary

Overview

Our MSc Spatial Planning is a benchmark qualification for those wishing to enter the planning profession. It is fully accredited by Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

The course takes a broad approach to the “traditional” field of city and regional or town and country planning. And combines core planning education with the development of expertise in specialist areas.

You will develop a broad and flexible level of knowledge and understanding which enables you to adapt to developing pressures during your career. You will learn to integrate concerns across the board, including those of:

  • economy
  • climate change
  • social need.

We have top-of-the-range facilities including studios, IT suites and computer programs. As well as three libraries and 24/7 online databases with all the academic material you need to be successful in your studies. Our links with practitioners in both the private and public sectors ensures that the course remains at the cutting edge of practice.

Career prospects

Not only is the MSc in Spatial Planning seen as the benchmark qualification for professional planners, it is also widely recognised as providing the transferable skills and critical knowledge necessary in many fields of work in the built and natural environment.

Local government is just one of very many career opportunities available to MSc in Spatial Planning graduates.
