About Urban Design at Cardiff University

The MA Urban Design will enable you to learn through design, gain familiarity with theory, undertake research and study development and design control processes, all of which are intrinsic to the discipline of urban design.

Urban design is a discipline that sits between a number of built environment areas of knowledge including urban policy, architectural design, landscape design and property valuation.

Designed to be policy-relevant and practice-related, the course allows you to develop close links with organisations involved in the design and regeneration of our urban areas and practitioners will assist you through tutoring, presentations and as key sources in your research work. These organisations include leading urban design practices in the UK and beyond, Design Commission for Wales, and Local authorities. These links are also helpful bridges for your understanding of the range of possible urban design career opportunities.

Studio teaching is built around development sites in real contexts to develop creative, practical and sustainable solutions to a range of urban design problems.
