About

Urban Design and City Planning is a unique programme from University College London (UCL) covering both theory and practice within urban design and city planning.

Overview

This Urban Design and City Planning programme from University College London (UCL) has a unique focus on urban design as a creative planning tool and the interface between urban design and city planning. 

Learning outcomes

It stresses the importance of planning as a positive and propositional force for good, and of urban design as a discipline within which the physical shaping of places is accompanied by an equal concern for their economic, social and environmental well-being.

The programme offers a comprehensive understanding and exposure to urban design theory and practice, with a particular emphasis on its interface with key dimensions of planning, real estate and sustainability.

It aims to help students develop an understanding of the quality and diversity of design products and plan-making processes, the ability to think in critical, creative and analytical ways across different dimensions of the city, and the capacity to engage with project work across scales and practice in the fields of urban design and city planning.

Careers and Employability

Graduate students from the Bartlett School of Planning have been very successful in gaining subsequent employment. There is growing demand for our Master's graduates from a wide range of both public and private employers. On completion of this programme the majority of graduates will work in either the public or private consultancy sectors. Some will continue in higher degree studies and research.

The Urban Design and City Planning MSc is an opportunity for students seeking to further their professional careers to specialise in urban design and, within that broad arena, to engage deeply with both the theoretical debates and practice methodologies, with particular research agendas of direct relevance to the future of their professional practice.

Accreditation

The MSc Urban Design and City Planning is fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
