The European Module on Spatial Development Planning is an intensive post-graduate programme offered at the KU Leuven to students, researchers and practitioners who share a planning philosophy oriented to serve progress in society. The Module adopts a pluralist approach, both in analytical focus and planning methodology, but is strongly anchored to principles of equity and sustainability.
The programme provides structured teaching, a series of self-standing seminars, and personalised tutoring on ongoing research. It lasts three months (from the beginning of March to the end of May) and presupposes residency in order to ensure the required intensive attendance. It is a unique opportunity to deepen or refresh the participants' academic and empirical knowledge and to enhance their ongoing research.
The programme is organised by the Faculty of Engineering in association with the European Spatial Development Planning (ESDP) network (20 partners across Europe).
Duration of the programme
The course lasts three months, from the beginning of March to the end of May of each Academic Year. It involves full-time attendance and, therefore, presupposes students' residency. At their request, students can stay an additional month to do tutored research.
