International Planning Studies

The is a combined spatial planning course that offers students the opportunity to specialise in international planning. Interdisciplinary and holistic in nature, this programme develops the core urban planning knowledge and skills necessary for planning practitioners with a professional interest in global planning systems. Students take a series of core courses, choose optional courses and undertake a dissertation or a major project in international planning. There is also an opportunity to take part in an international study trip. Core semester 1 courses are largely based on lectures, seminars and tutorials, and build an understanding of planning and urban theories and principles. Case studies will be used to examine urban development, planning systems and processes in western and rapidly urbanising countries while also learning from the urban experience in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Towards the end of semester 1 students start to develop core skills and build upon them in semester 2 through field, project and team work. This is designed to build spatial planning competencies and become a reflective practitioner.
