UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The course provides a strong international and comparative focus on planning and urban theory, and practice. The scope of the programme primarily encompasses Europe, North America, Australia, South Africa and the Far East, and increasingly China and South'East Asia.

Course Modules

Core modules: urban design: place making; pillars of planning; international planning; critical debates in international planning; support course: planning research (not credit bearing). Options: students choose two linked modules from the following to form a specialist study area: communities and planning; international property and planning; housing; mega'infrastructure planning; sustainable governance; urban design; urban regeneration.

Course Additional Entry

Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university (or higher). Overseas qualifications of an equivalent standard will also be considered. Admissions tutors may, at their discretion, consider applications from students who have not achieved this but hold professional qualifications (e.g. RTPI) or can demonstrate substantial work experience in the field of planning. Where this is the case, applicants will still be expected to meet the minimum UCL academic requirement of a lower 2nd Class degree.
