Urban Studies and Planning MPlan
This is a four-year course, professionally accredited by the RTPI, leading to an undergraduate Master of Planning qualification. The first year covers core ideas that influence planning and urban development and the skills planners need, including urban design. It includes a field trip to Edinburgh.

The second year develops your understanding of concepts and practices in town planning. There is a residential field trip, currently to the Netherlands. You can also apply to spend your second year at one of our partner universities in the USA, Canada, Singapore, Australia or Hong Kong. Before you begin your third year, you'll have a period of work experience in a local planning office or private sector planning consultancy, looking at how plans are made.

The third year focuses on how planning ideas and planning practice interact. You'll have a further period of work experience in a local planning office or private sector planning consultancy, during the Easter vacation.

Your final year prepares you for professional practice and allows you to develop your knowledge and expertise through specialist options. You can spend part of the year studying in Denmark, Italy or France under the Socrates-Erasmus programme.
