Additionally, you will be aware of the environmental and social issues crucial to the success of contemporary urban planning. This distinctive combination gives you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
This degree builds on the BSc Real Estate course with the first two years being shared. In the third year, you will specialise in development and planning and complete your undergraduate studies at that point. During the fourth year, you will take a twelve month MSc Urban Planning and Development course which will give you Royal Town Planning Institute accreditation.
