The courses are flexibly structured in order to provide either a broad training in planning or, particularly for those withprior professional experience, a degree of specialisation. For the Diploma, threecore modules provide an introduction to development planning both in the UK and in rapidly urbanising countries, and toenvironmental issues in relation to development. These are complemented by a range of elective modules: packages can be assembled to permit concentration on specific areas including housing, urban transport, energy and environment, urban design, regional planning and planning and development in the UK.
