Postgraduate degree programmes
Much of our research and teaching is intended to help policy-making by providing a bridge between academic research and the needs of policy-makers in central and local government and other agencies. Underlying this is the aim of developing a better understanding of the processes of change in the urban and regional environment; the reasons for change; and its effects on towns, cities and regions and the people who live there. The following courses are available on a full or part time basis:
