UCL (University College London)
Preferably an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or higher) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of equivalent standing is required. There is no particular subject requirement as the Master's provides an 'initial' planning and urban regeneration education for graduates with cognate or non-cognate degrees. Where candidates fail to meet the standard requirement (i.e. they hold a degree of a lower classification), the department will take into account professional experience when deciding whether to admit. Applicants who do not hold an upper 2nd Class degree may, in exceptional cases, be admitted to the programme if they are able to demonstrate considerable senior-level professional experience in planning or a related field.
Core Modules: Urban problems and problematics; development projects; preparing regeneration projects; implementing regeneration projects; critical debates in urban regeneration; urban design (place making); support course (planning research). Options: Cities and the environment; housing; modules on the global south from the development planning unit (DPU); sustainable urban development; the representation of cities and other modules from the urban lab; transport policy and planning; urban design; urban economics and politics. Students taking RTPI accreditation must take the following: Planning practice; Plus either comparative planning systems and cultures or spatial planning (concepts and context).
The programme is delivered through individual and group project work, lectures, tutorials, seminars and workshops. You will participate for free in a field trip to mainland Europe and in several site visits in the UK. You will be assessed through essays, individual and group projects, presentations, reports, an unseen written examination and the dissertation.
