Program Overview

The specialism of this course is sustainable coastal communities with a focus on climate change and flood risk, making it very relevant to our current times and location. You will gain the understanding, skills and experience to practise as a professional town and country planner or surveyor.

This course mixes theory and practice so that you'll learn to think and act both locally and globally and how to apply your knowledge in the real world.

You will be equipped to critically evaluate how urban development is regulated to bring about the best social, economic and environmental outcomes through an exploration of the issues which affect the built environment.

This course is dual accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and is the only RTPI and RICS-accredited course on the south coast. Our delivery is made richer as a result of our direct engagement with the RTPI and the RICS, along with the Town and Country Planning Association and the Royal Geographic Society, as well as agencies, local authorities, the UK government and EU advisory bodies.

The programme promotes critical thinking, community engagement, partnership building and leadership. It is taught from an outstanding location by the sea, the nearby South Downs National Park and a 180-degree catchment area. Each year, we run an optional but recommended international study visit. In the past, this has been to the Netherlands or France.
