Urban Planning and Real Estate

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This programme has been devised in discussion with employers who consider a training combining urban planning skills and real estate concepts as key to future development and providing graduates with a highly sought qualification. Its aim is to deliver graduates not only with a sound technical background in planning and real estate but with real sense of practical real life experiences. Students will have a dedicated teaching room with an emphasis on continuous assessment and student led learning. Teaching is exclusively with other postgraduate students.


This 12 Month full-time intensive programme offers a MSc accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute and Royal institution of Charted Surveyors. The programme is based in the School of Geosciences, Department of Geography & Environment, one of the largest and oldest in the UK, offering excellent opportunities and facilities for its students. Teaching is shared with the University of Aberdeen Business School.

International Student Requirements:

The minimum requirement is a first degree (equivalent to a British second class Honors degree). Evidence of English Language Proficiency may also be required. The Programme Director will consider applicants with non-standard qualifications, particularly those with substantial work experience. We have one intake each year in September. Late applications may be asked to wait until the next intake should the programme coordinator feel there is insufficient time to consider the application. Prospective students are advised to apply as early in the year as possible to secure a place. Overseas students wishing to study on the course are particularly advised to apply in plenty of time to allow visa applications to proceed in a timely manner.
