Why study Spatial Planning - Planning, Land and Real Estate Development programme offered at Radboud University
- This specialisation offers a different understanding of planning and forms of practices. You will be encouraged to develop new ways of creating socially, environmentally and economically just places.
- We are a small, almost ‘family-like’ department that covers a broad range of topics with a strong track record in related research. This means that you’ll have the advantage of enjoying plenty of one-on-one contact with expert supervisors while pursuing a topic that is of personal interest to you.
- You are trained to think outside given boxes by combining well-established core courses with electives providing state of the art specialist knowledge.
- Together with lecturers and practitioners, you will develop smart and sustainable solutions for actual and future planning problems.
Upon completion students will have knowledge of:
- Interfaces between different planning concepts, sectors and interests
- Synergies that are found and trade-offs that are made along these interfaces
- Paths through which integrative planning is manifested in policy formulation, decision-making and projects at different geographical and institutional levels
Spatial planners from Nijmegen work as policy maker, consultant or project manager for government, consulting firms, project developers, housing corporations or research institutes. Also, more and more of our alumni are working in international projects.
