Master of Urban Planning
The Master of Urban Planning is a full-time, two-year programme specifically designed for people who have an undergraduate degree in another discipline and are seeking to gain a professionally accredited urban planning education as a pathway into practice.
Urban planners play a strategic role in shaping challenging urban environments – economically, environmentally, socially and culturally.
This professionally accredited degree focuses on issues such as policy formulation and implementation, urban sustainability, urban design, urban economics, social and cultural matters, and infrastructure design.
The Master of Urban Planning is a full-time, two-year programme made up of taught courses that are research-led, drawing on the latest developments in urban planning scholarship and examining a range of New Zealand and international examples of best urban planning practice.
To gain entry into the Master of Urban Planning, you must have completed a bachelors or masters degree, or the equivalent, in a relevant discipline excluding the Degree of Bachelor of Planning or Master of Planning Practice.
In assessing your application we will take into account the ranking of the institution at which you completed your bachelors degree as well as the grades achieved in the relevant subjects (you will need a grade-point average of equivalent to a B or 5).
The Master of Urban Planning is taught entirely in English. You must therefore be able to understand, speak and write English fluently.
To be eligible for entrance, international students must achieve:
- Academic IELTS 6.5, with no band less than 6.0 or
- TOEFL (paper-based) 575 (TWE 4.5) or
