Spatial Planning

This programme helps students acquire a broad foundation of knowledge in spatial planning, from which more detailed or specialist study can be developed, and to relate academic thinking and research at the forefront of spatial planning to their own experience, whether at work or otherwise. Students take 4 core planning courses and choose from a range of optional courses. Courses involve attending lectures, seminars and tutorials and taking part in project, lab, field and team work. Core courses will provide an understanding of the fundamental concepts in planning and apply them to particular case studies.
