Programme Overview

This programme is suitable for those wishing to develop a broader critical understanding of the urban built environment. 

It provides an especially useful grounding for students considering a PhD in architecture, planning and landscape, or those who wish to add a range of planning skills to an existing professional qualification in another discipline.

It is particularly relevant for those wishing to work in urban redevelopment or regeneration.  It enhances the understanding and skills of those who are currently professional Urban Designers, Planners or Architects. 

However, it does not provide professional accreditation for either the planning or architecture professions.

Extra costs may be incurred for materials and travel as part of this programme.


The programme combines taught and research elements, and offers a particularly wide range of choices for specialisation, drawing on the wide variety of postgraduate modules available within Architecture, Planning and Landscape.
