Study type Taught

Summary

Shelter is one of the most basic human needs, but the provision of that shelter - the development of enough housing of the right type and quality in the most appropriate locations - is a challenge that few, if any, governments in the Global North have fully addressed. This MSc offers an interdisciplinary perspective on the 'housing question' in advanced economies, with contributions from across the faculty and from external practitioners.

Students will develop appropriate design, analytical and presentational skills, and work on practical cases that test their capacity for creative thinking and problem-solving. The curriculum covers UK-specific policy and practice as well as a range of international case studies and globally relevant debates in the provision of housing.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of six core modules (90 credits), two elective modules from across The Bartlett School of Planning or beyond, subject to approval (30 credits) and a dissertation/report (60 credits).

A Postgraduate Diploma, six core modules (90 credits), two elective modules (30 credits), full-time nine months, is offered.

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Housing and City Planning. Upon successful completion of 120 credits, you will be awarded a PG Dip in Housing and City Planning.
