Career prospects

Students completing the programme, which has specialist accreditation from the Royal Town Planning Institute, will take up jobs in a wide range of fields. We anticipate that many will take up jobs related to the core specialisms – housing and community planning – which may involve working in public, private and third sector organisations, including local authorities, consultancies, charities, and housing associations. In addition to specialist knowledge, the programme will give students a broad understanding of planning practice in the UK and internationally which will enable them to take up careers in areas of planning practice external to the core specialisms. The programme will equip students with a broad range of skills transferable to other occupations and to careers both in the UK and internationally, including written and verbal communication, digital fluency, and research.   .
