Course summary

Course summary

The Urban and Regional Planning MA gives students the skills, knowledge and abilities necessary to practise professionally as a spatial planner in a variety of private, public and third sector/community contexts. Building on the University of Westminster's experience of delivering postgraduate courses in town planning for more than 80 years, it examines planning across diverse contexts and scales, but focuses on planning in, and for, towns, cities, and urban regions in the UK. Students are taught by qualified and dedicated staff who possess vast industry, research and teaching experience and moreover benefit from studying in a genuinely interdisciplinary academic environment with excellent industry links in the heart of one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

The course is professionally accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and covers both the ‘spatial’ and ‘specialist’ elements of the RTPI’s requirements for initial planning education. It is designed to accommodate busy schedules and offered for full-time or part-time study at the University's modern Marylebone campus in central London. The course's main objective is to create critical-minded, well-rounded and highly employable graduates who can excel in a variety of career environments and possess the skills and competencies necessary for addressing the manifold challenges and opportunities associated with contemporary spatial development and planning.

In addition to the MA qualification, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate options are also available, enabling students to access the course at a point that is relevant to their circumstances, achieve credits and leave at a point that specifically meets their needs.
