City Planning and Real Estate Development

There is significant input from industry to the teaching programme, including teaching on some courses, guest lectures and seminars. There are also informal opportunities to meet people from industry at open events and recruitment presentations. The programme is divided into 3 equal parts, with the 1st part further subdivided. Students take a series of core courses, choose optional courses and undertake a dissertation or a major project in real planning and real estate development. Core courses provide a grounding in core knowledge and skills required of planners and surveyors working within the planning and development field. Courses are assessed by a mix of continuous methods to enable students to develop a suitable balance of planning and real estate development competencies. They will involve attending lectures, seminars and tutorials and taking part in project, IT lab, field and team work.
