The world is experiencing unprecedented urbanisation in terms of the speed and nature of growth. One of the key issues for future practitioners will be how to deal with the challenge of reusing, transforming and regenerating the existing urban fabrics of megacities and regions in order to make cities more sustainable and resilient.
The programme suits students from a range of different backgrounds and it is not limited to those with an urban planning undergraduate degree. Through the programme you will gain the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills required to become an urban planner, capable of tackling urban regeneration challenges in diverse contexts, and of providing a vision for future cities.
Graduates from this MSc Urban Planning programme at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University are well prepared for careers in a range of areas including urban planning, policy development, urban design, and property development. Graduates may also find employment with community groups as an advocate to give them a voice in built environment decision-making processes, or with local and central government, and non-governmental organisations both national and international.
