The course focuses upon developing a spatial understanding of the underlying principles and current theories needed to understand and respond to (design) the challenges that 21st century urbanisation presents across the globe. It supports students in developing a spatial design skill-set able to respond to the complex array of social, economic and environmental factors affecting cities, as well as to cultural issues, such as spatial traditions and histories of city form and design. Opportunities to attend study trips overseas underpin the learning and form an integral part of key modules. In recent years the School has run many successful overseas study trips to a wide variety of cities in Europe, South and North America Asia and the Global South; the School also benefits from research/ collaboration links to Schools of Architecture overseas. The programme concludes with a ‘thesis’ module. Two pathways are available. Whilst both focus upon ‘design’, one offers opportunity to conclude one’s studies in an extensive written thesis, whilst the other offers opportunity to conclude the studies in a thesis comprising of drawn/ modelled/ illustrated outputs in combination with a shorter written text. All students also have the option of a year of industry placement prior to commencing their thesis studies.
