Sustainable Urbanism

This programme offers urban professionals a theoretical understanding of the range of disciplines that together contribute to the delivery of sustainable urbanism, and explores the conceptual and technical skills necessary to create sustainable urban environments. The programme includes an integral field trip which offers students the opportunity to observe and consider sustainability in practice.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or higher) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. There is no particular subject requirement as the Master's provides an 'initial' planning 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 in planning or a related field when deciding whether to admit a candidate. Applicants who do not hold a 1st 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.
