About

Fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), the Urban and Regional Planning (RTPI Accredited) programme from University of Birmingham is designed to develop students as reflective practitioners in the planning profession and related disciplines in the built environment.

Overview

Fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), this programme is designed to develop students as reflective practitioners in the planning profession and related disciplines in the built environment, and can be studied either full-or part-time. It is ideal for those who wish to gain a professional qualification that will enable them to pursue and build a career in spatial planning and related areas of regeneration, economic development, housing and transport.

The structure enables students to combine the core modules and material in spatial planning with a specialist focus in fields such as urban regeneration, community based planning, economic development and urban resilience.

In addition to the MSc Urban and Regional Planning, for students who are currently employed in a Planning role, we now offer a Level 7 Chartered Town Planner Degree Apprenticeship. This represents a new and exciting opportunity for learners to gain an Msc in Urban and Regional Planning as well as Chartership of the RTPI. This route requires the support of employers and it is funded by the Degree Apprenticeship Levy.
