This Masters degree offers students the opportunity to study the various spatial planning dimensions of regeneration at local, regional and national scales. Most modules contain a significant practice-orientated component that focuses on developing the skills and knowledge necessary for working effectively in the 'real world'.
This MSc is accredited as a standalone programme by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Planning and Development Pathway). It is also accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), but only for graduates who have successfully completed an RTPI-accredited undergraduate programme, however, the School does offer an RTPI-accredited MSc programme for graduates from a range of non-planning backgrounds, for more information, please see the Planning section of the School website.
