  • Objectives
    This three-year course gives you substantial knowledge of planning while offering the freedom to study a broader range of topics. In your third year you can select modules from departments such as Geography, Politics and Sociology. You can transfer between Urban Studies and Urban Studies and Planning up to the end of your second year. Each of our courses has a distinctive structure and content, with options that allow you to shape your own programme of study. Small group and individual teaching, and assessment by coursework, increase in importance as you progress through your studies. We operate a personal and academic development system to help you to get the most from your university experience. We also have an excellent record of graduate employment.
