Course summary

The Urban Development Planning MSc explores planning theories and international practices in urban development policy, planning and management that address contemporary spatial, socio-economic and political transformations in cities of the Global South. This MSc aims to equip participants to work effectively as development planners and practitioners in urban contexts through imparting a deeper understanding of the processes that generate urban change. The programme aims to enhance participants' diagnostic and strategic capacities to respond to such change within the framework of socially just urban governance.

Careers

This MSc is widely recognised by international organisations and agencies (such as UN agencies and the World Bank) and bilateral aid organisations from different countries. Graduate destinations range from UK-based organisations in the public, private and community sectors to governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations which operate in a development capacity in the South. Graduates have also been employed by international NGOs and aid and development agencies. Some graduates return to their home countries and engage in the practice, teaching or research of urban development practice; other graduates have successfully sought employment in international development organisations away from their own countries.

Employability

The programme aims to help students: prepare balanced and critical analyses/arguments, attentive to the particularities of place, based on theoretical insights and empirical evidence; undertake well-supported diagnoses of the problems and opportunities in given urban development contexts, in ways that reframe strategic opportunites for action
