Fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), this programme is designed to develop students as reflective practitioners in the planning profession and related disciplines in the built environment, and can be studied either full-or part-time.

Our students benefit hugely from the diversity of activity undertaken by the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies. Our extensive research and consultancy work ensures that our teaching is relevant, up-to-date and research-led while losing none of its intellectual rigours.
