Study type Taught


Deepen your knowledge and research skills of urban design while seeking to solve complex challenges the industry faces, on UCA's new postgraduate Urban Design degree.

Taught at the Canterbury School of Architecture and Design, this course, within its stimulating, creative and supportive environment, will help you develop your own approach to urban design, which you'll do through research-led practice and experimental design.

Specialist areas you might choose to focus on in your projects could include climatic design, urban revitalisation and renewal, advanced retrofit, localism, transport infrastructures, urban or rural landscapes, or specialist urban analysis. You can work with interesting heritage and sustainability questions, engaging with both contemporary technology and traditional crafts, as well as exploring both digital and ‘real’ space.

You will have access to advanced forms of fabrication and testing, the latest scanning and VR technology, and a suite of traditional craft based workshops, all of which will allow you to bring your design proposals to life, and help launch you to potential higher level urban design and planning careers.
