The MA in International Development and Planning had its first intake in 2007 and is directed at those wishing to acquire the skills and knowledge to pursue careers in planning and development in the Global South (developing countries). Its emphasis on exploring the relevance of cutting-edge theoretical debates for planning and development practice will make it of interest to both recent graduates and those with existing professional experience. Students from, or with work experience in, the Global South are particularly encouraged to apply.
The course is fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), allowing graduates to become chartered members of the Institute once necessary RTPI practice requirements have been met.
