University of Westminster

Course Introduction

Cities are increasingly dynamic, complex and global in their impact. The aim of this integrated degree course is to enable you to develop a broad understanding of urban planning and design, and the contribution they can make to sustainable development. The course will help you to build a professional career, taking an active role in shaping our cities as they continue to grow and adapt; it will also give you the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Course Modules

The course capitalises on the benefits that London, as a global city and as a major creative, intellectual and technology hub, has to offer for your learning environment and student experience, and a number of first'year modules focus on the city. During the first year you will study contemporary issues in designing cities, construction and environmental design, the history of architectural and urban form, skills for planning and architecture (analysis and visual communication), and a project on planning for integrated neighbourhoods. Core modules in the second year include strategic spatial planning, development process and property markets, and projects on townscape and conservation, and regeneration and development (with an international field trip). In your final year, alongside a core project on planning policy and design intervention, you will complete modules on sustainability and environment, a research report, and work experience and professional practice.
