School named in UK Foresight report

The School has been featured as an example of best practice in Foresight Future of Cities report on UK-China cities relationships

Architecture, Planning and Landscape is named as an example of best practice in relation to our relationship with Xiamen University, China.

The report, which is produced by the UK Government Office for Science, states:

"Newcastle University’s School of Architecture Planning and Landscape has developed a strong relationship to Xiamen School of Architecture and Civil Engineering to develop joint research publications and the School is finalising the arrangements for a dual-award Masters degree which will recruit its first cohort for Sept 2016 entry. The School has also led an EU FP7 PUMAH project on urbanisation, planning, management and urban heritage, that connects three leading Chinese universities and four other leading European institutions together with policy-makers in Europe and China."

The report also cites the Centre for Urban and Regional Development (CURDS) as another example of best practice.
