Course summary

This MSc brings a cross-disciplinary focus to transport and urban planning which is unique, aiming to critically examine the current challenges of transitioning to sustainable travel behaviours and sustainable cities in the UK and internationally. The programme draws on the latest thinking and debates in transport, urban planning and major infrastructure project development. The aim of the MSc is to enable students to work effectively as transport and urban planning practitioners, moving beyond the ‘disciplinary silos’ usually found in academia and practice. A key feature of the MSc is its integrative design across transport and urban planning disciplines - it sees transport as part of the planning of the sustainable city. It draws on a range of different theories and perspectives, with modules linked by common principles.

Careers

100% of graduates from this programme are in work and/or further study six months after graduating (The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2016/17). The programme is attractive to candidates who wish to work across disciplines, and at the strategic policy development levels, with urban planning, geography, transport planning or engineering graduates, or wider specialists, who see their future work in transport planning as part of the design of sustainable cities. Graduate students from The Bartlett School of Planning have been very successful in gaining subsequent employment. At present there is a growing demand for our postgraduates from a wide range of both private and public employers, within the transport planning or urban planning professions, or the nexus of strategy development and implementation.

Employability

This programme will equip students with the skills needed to work effectively as transport and planning practitioners in urban contexts in the public or third sector, for example in consultancy, central government, Transport for London (TfL), Greater London Authority (GLA), metropolitan authorities, local authorities, international investment banks, civil society and lobby groups. Potential employers also include international consultancies; such as Arup, AECOM and Atkins.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma with fees set accordingly.

Accreditation:

If you hold an RTPI accredited undergraduate degree then successfully completing the MSc in Transport & City Planning (as either a full MSc or a PG Diploma) will make you eligible for membership of the RTPI.
