The MSc Spatial Planning and Development aims to put you on the road to being a good planner.
Our MSc in Spatial Planning and Development (accredited by the RTPI and RICS) is the ideal starting point for your career as a planner or surveyor and will develop and strengthen your core planning and development skills, relevant and applicable to a range of spatial scales. It will provide you with the theoretical knowledge, critical insight and practical abilities to achieve your ambitions and positively contribute to the practices and policies of planning and development, in the UK and beyond.
Planning and development is often undertaken in diverse, and sometimes unequal or unjust societies and can be the subject of debate and struggle. This is why, while acquiring the specialist skills you will need to succeed, we’ll also help you nurture your professional judgement and be sensitive to wider ethical, political and environmental challenges. We'll empower you to question the status quo and challenge your own thinking to form and articulate independent conclusions.
Our focus is on planning and development in advanced market economies, especially the UK and Europe, but the programme’s exploration of planning and development is comparative, and the skills taught are applicable in many planning contexts.Accreditations
