Urban and Regional Planning

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Urban and regional planning is a design and development field in which there are many specializations depending on one’s tastes. A few of the more popular subdivisions range from community and economic development to land use to transportation.

 

Australia has the third largest number of foreign students in the world despite having a community of only 23 million. These are strong academic credentials, but Australian institutions are just as highly ranked as the cities that house them around the native land.

Eleven universities largely operate in this city. For instance, the popular University of Sydney, University of New South Wales and Macquarie University are located here.
