We offer a wide range of postgraduate taught programmes that address contemporary policy and research issues.
All our postgraduate taught courses are situated within key policy research areas and groups in the School. These courses are well recognised by the academic and policy communities both domestically and internationally, with several programmes offering professional recognition from the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT).
- 96% of our master’s graduates were in employment and/or further study, due to start a new job or course, or doing other activities such as travelling 15 months after the end of their course (HESA data).
Our postgraduate students form an integral part of the Graduate School and are members of the Masters Graduate School of City and Regional Planning (MGS), which seeks to ensure that the School is a place where students and scholars can advance intellectually and in career and professional terms.
