Closed for application



The course's starting point is to introduce urban and regional planning as a theoretical topic and how it relates to planning practices. This course introduces three main tracks; how strategic urban and regional planning relates to challenges such as climate change, digitalisation, urbanisation and globalisation; how urban and regional planning is affected by geological conditions and how it contributes to spatial patterns and changes at a local, regional, national and global level; and to introduce fundamental planning tools such as GIS.


On completion of the course, the student should be able to :

- describe and explain key concepts in urban and regional planning

- critically examine and analyse planning theories and planning practices

- describe how urban and regional planning is affected by geological conditions

- explain how digitalisation, urbanisation, climate change and globalisation are key challenges for strategic urban and regional planning
