BSc (Hons) Urban Design and Planning

Discover the role of the urban planner and designer and its impact on society and learn the advanced skills to become one on our BSc (Hons) Urban Design and Planning course.

Our course is based at UCA Canterbury’s School of Architecture and Design, where you’ll learn spatial practices, and the value that an Urban Designer can add to projects and the wider community. You’ll use Canterbury and the wider Kent landscape as a canvas from which to work, researching, designing and examining the impact that your designs and plans would have upon it.

On campus, you’ll be able to take advantage of our extensive facilities, including forms of fabrication and testing, the latest scanning and VR technology, and a suite of traditional craft based workshops, all of which will allow you to bring your design proposals to life. You will have the freedom to establish your own unique specialisms, such as advanced retrofit-based knowledge, and you will develop your own highly individualised design identity and style.

Along the way you’ll be guided by our team of academics and a wide range of industry professionals, and collaborative opportunities alongside students across the School of Architecture and Design will give you an enriched experience where specialised learning is combined with new perspectives and approaches to broaden your own horizons.

As part of the course, you'll benefit from interaction with industry through live project opportunities, masterclasses, and optionally - professional work experience placement, if you choose the Professional Practice Year pathway – building industry-relevant skills to ensure that you graduate ready for the workplace.
