Planning and Real Estate - University of Manchester

The BSc (Hons) Planning and Real Estate is a three-year degree which will provide you with the core academic and professional training in planning and real estate. You will consider the issues faced by professionals in dealing with the planning, development and management of all aspects of our built and natural environments. Effective planning, development and management of our towns, cities and countryside is crucial in an age when governments and societies all over the world are struggling to deliver sustainable development. Understanding and engaging with the problems facing the communities and places in which we live, work and play is at the heart of what we do in the department of Planning and Environmental Management at The University of Manchester. The BSc Planning and Real Estate degree, as a three year programme, is accredited as a spatial qualification by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). To acquire full accreditation by the RTPI, students must also complete a specialist qualification , which can be achieved by transferring onto our 4 year programmes (MPRE or MPlan) or do an additional 1 years Masters that are accredited by the RTPI. This course is also seeking accreditation from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We are one of the longest established and largest professionally recognised accredited schools in the UK, renowned internationally for our teaching and the quality of our research. We have always prided ourselves on the close working relationships between students and staff, and a genuinely friendly atmosphere. **Our teaching covers a wide range of contemporary topics, including:** - Sustainable development - Urban regeneration - Real estate - Urban design - Communities - Housing - Sustainable cities - Valuation - Climate change - Planning - Environmental assessment and management. As our planning, real estate and environmental management undergraduate degrees share many common course units in the first year, you are normally permitted to transfer onto a different degree in this portfolio at the end of your first year should you find one area of study particularly interesting. Manchester is a great place to study planning and real estate; it was the world's first industrial city and is now a vibrant 21st century metropolis. It is a place of major urban change with plenty of scope to explore urban development pressures and how this shapes economic, social and environmental futures. In contrast, Manchester is surrounded by a wide variety of rural environments, and this diversity has interesting implications for planning and real estate markets.
