Urban Design is an interdisciplinary activity. We attract students from different disciplines, cultures and nationalities; we embody an integrative philosophy, bringing together theory and practice from different fields in a comprehensive and coordinated way.
The programme is open to anyone with either a first degree in a relevant subject, or with relevant work experience and no first degree.
Our approach provides the basis for creative joined up thinking: since the inception of our MA in Urban Design courses in 1972, we have felt that the traditional professional built environment disciplines largely fail to address the issues involved in designing great places. These issues fall through gaps that separate architecture, planning, landscape architecture, estate management, traffic engineering and the host of others involved in the production of place. We fill the gaps.
Taking our courses, you will graduate from the postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or MA in Urban Design course with the essential knowledge, skills, techniques and methods to create great places anywhere in the world.
