Birmingham City University
Environmental and Spatial Planning
The course adopts a knowledge-centric approach to thinking, acting and social process across the broad spread of spatial planning; this approach differs from conventional approaches, based on detailed technical knowledge, by developing a capability to work with incomplete knowledge; students are encouraged to develop their own approaches to problems rather than being presented with standard solutions.
A good UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in a broad range of subjects agreed as 'cognate' by the RTPI. Students who do not possess the above qualifications may, in exceptional circumstances if they have relevant professional experience, be invited to an interview, at which they are required to demonstrate the necessary knowledge and understanding for entry onto the course.
Modules include: Spirit and purpose planning; policies and plans; development management; planning futures; strategy in practice; development processes and place making; law and environment governance; research project.
ODPM bursaries available for eligible full-time students, subject to annual confirmation; these are allocated competitively if the available bursaries are over-subscribed.
