Designed to reflect the widening remit of professional planning to facilitate action and intervention in the mediation of space and the creation of place, the programme addresses the recognised shortage of skills to deliver on this agenda in challenging times. The programme has been developed to be taken either full time over one year or part time over two years.
Provisional accreditation has been awarded by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). Full accreditation is being sought.
A good honours degree (at least lower second class) or equivalent, in an appropriate subject (e.g. planning, geography, architecture, sociology, environmental science). Applicants with no formal qualifications may be acceptable.
International Student Requirements:
Applicants with overseas qualifications can check their comparability with the UK equivalent through NARIC, who provide an advisory service.
If your first language is not English then evidence of English proficiency is required. The level of proficiency that is required can vary with the type of programme for which you are applying. For further advice on the appropriateness of overseas qualification and proficiency in the use of English, please contact our International Office.
The minimum IELTS score for acceptable English proficiency for entry is normally 6.5.
