Subject

Planning

If you have an interest in property and planning, and aspire to reach chartered surveyor or chartered town planner status, our Property Development and Planning course will provide you with the skills you need. The course has been developed to reflect the connections between our other undergraduate courses and the range of professions active in managing the built environment, giving you a varied and comprehensive education. You will assess how property development can affect individuals and groups, examining the process and outcomes. You will also look at development plans, policies and projects and examine the physical, technical, legal, environmental and political factors affecting development decisions. You will develop an awareness of the complexities and variety within different communities, as well as evaluating community participation and empowerment in development projects. Our course has been developed in line with the requirements of two professional bodies, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). It’s an exciting time to study in Birmingham – the city is undergoing huge regeneration. This means that there are many opportunities, now and in the future, for those with built environment qualifications. Choosing to study the MPlan integrated Master’s degree programme will enable you to stand out from the crowd on graduation with a Master’s level qualification. You will also undertake a final year project which will help you to develop advanced technical and professional skills.
