This Spatial Planning part-time programme offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology provides an opportunity for practitioners and qualified individuals to become professional planners by attending an accredited part-time planning course. 


This Spatial Planning part-time programme offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology is presented within the School of Transport Engineering, Environment and Planning in DIT Bolton Street.  An intake of 10-15 students is envisaged, of different disciplines and backgrounds, all with some professional experience, usually in the built environment.  The course provides scope for a considerable degree of inter-disciplinary learning both within the student group as well as between lecturers and students.

The group environment fosters a creative atmosphere of interactive problem-based learning.  Students are set real-life challenges often involving actual problems facing planning agencies, who also get involved in tuition and assessment.  The teaching faculty is made up of committed DIT personnel in addition to practising professionals, considered some of Ireland’s leading experts in their respective disciplines. 

Career opportunities

The course is accredited by the Irish Planning Institute and the Royal Town Planning Institute, the two established and internationally recognised accreditation bodies for spatial planning in Ireland.

Many graduates use their knowledge to supplement their existing professional practice.  Equally, many others use the programme to reskill into planning positions within local authorities, agencies, government bodies or private practice.  Others still, use the course to develop practice in new and emerging areas of planning, which like any contemporary profession is an evolving field.
