UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The programme broadens students' appreciation of planning and urban theory whilst providing them with the necessary skills to engage in critical and creative problem solving.

Course Modules

Core modules: Urban design (place making); from strategic vision to urban plan; pillars of planning; spatial planning; critical debates in planning. Options: Communities and planning; housing; international property and planning; mega infrastructure planning; sustainable governance; urban design; urban regeneration.

Course Additional Entry

Preferably an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or higher) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of equivalent standing. There is no particular subject requirement as the course provides an 'initial' planning education for graduates with cognate and non'cognate degrees. Where candidates fail to meet the standard requirement (i.e. they hold a degree of a lower classification), the department will take into account professional experience in planning or a related field when deciding whether to admit a candidate. Applicants who do not hold a 1st degree may, in exceptional cases, by admitted to the programme if they are able to demonstrate considerable senior'level professional experience in planning or a related field.
