Spatial planners create and manage sustainable cities and the countryside and help solve urban problems.

This course focuses specifically on developing and enhancing your knowledge and critical understanding of the principles and practices of urban design to achieve sustainable cities and regions. You'll be able to suggest intervention strategies to improve the regeneration of declining places and cities.

You will also develop your understanding of spatial analysis, statutory planning, property development processes, and sustainability in contemporary cities and sustainable urban design.

Covid-19 is reframing the shape of our places. Planning can support that change and help us achieve a sustainable future. Planning expertise will be crucial in managing change in our built and natural environments and for the well-being of people. Post-COVID-19, and with growing attention to the climate emergency, our built environment is unlikely to return to its previous form. The role of planning is vital in the creation of 15-minute cities and other strategies for change at both a local and strategic level.

Our academic staff have a strong research and practice background in specialist areas. We collaborate with key planning agencies in and around Dundee, meaning you can learn from practitioners through lectures, seminars, and fieldwork. This also means you will have the opportunity to engage with 'live' projects as part of your learning.

The father of town planning, Patrick Geddes was a professor at this university, which means we have strong historical links to the planning profession.
