Course summary

Our Urban Design MA is aimed at built environment professionals who want to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in the field of urban design. It equips you to contribute towards an improvement in the quality of the built environment.

The course is structured around three main design projects. Each explores key contemporary issues in urban design:

urban regeneration
housing
public space and engagement

These projects are underpinned by theoretical and practical lectures, seminars and workshops. The course is primarily studio based and there is an emphasis on independent learning. You are encouraged to cultivate a studio atmosphere within your year group where you will benefit from each other's diverse disciplinary backgrounds.

Building on the strengths of the multidisciplinarity of its cohort, the course complements existing skills and experience in built environment related disciplines with new skills in understanding and designing in physical, social and economic contexts.

The course can be undertaken by students from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds, including:

architecture
planning
landscape architecture
property development
art
community engagement.

Students can also exit with PGDip Award.
