The Haymarket, Newcastle City CentreA planning-related degree could be for you if you are:

  • interested in your surroundings
  • curious about how places change
  • concerned about sustainability
  • keen to influence the way our environment is developed or conserved

Newcastle provides the ultimate case study for planning students. The rise and decline of industry and the recent cultural renaissance have turned the city into a ‘living laboratory’ for exploration and study.  

There is a fantastic range of live planning projects on your doorstep and you will have plenty of opportunities to get out and about in the city and beyond through frequent projects and field trips. You may also undertake a European field trip in second year to examine planning issues in a European city.
