Commonwealth Supported Places available for Master of Urban and Regional Planning


25 May 2012

The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning is pleased to announce that a limited number of Commonwealth Supported Places are now available for the Master of Urban and Regional Planning in Semester 2, 2012. These places are available to domestic students only.


The Urban and Regional Planning program teaches strong foundations in urban and regional planning theory and practice. Students have the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge in emergent fields, such as strategic planning and environmental design, planning systems and principles and international urban development.


Urban and regional planners are increasingly involved in formulating policies and guiding urban and environmental initiatives that underpin the process of planning and 'place making'. A key outcome of the program is to provide graduates with the skills, knowledge and tools to better manage the social, environmental and economic impacts and consequences of development. The program emphasises students learning appropriate communication, reasoning and analytical skills so as to make a valuable contribution to the planning profession including urban design. There is also an opportunity to specialise in the Heritage Conservation stream.


Applications for Commonwealth Supported Places will be considered on merit. Apply now for Semester 2, 2012.


Students currently undertaking the Master of Urban and Regional Planning are invited to contact the Student Administration Centre.
