The postgraduate programme in Urban Strategies and Design is delivered jointly by the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA) of the University of Edinburgh and the Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design at Heriot-Watt University.
This new programme addresses the current need for interdisciplinary knowledge. It encourages the adoption of a comprehensive approach towards the delivery of socially-sustainable urban transformation, from local-specific to strategic metropolitan and regional interventions. Students study the wide and diverse range of social, economic, and political processes that determine the contemporary urban environment, and acquire the tools and skills to propose urban projects of diverse scales and specificities.
You can exit at the end of 9 months with PgDip Urban Strategies and Design.
Normally a UK 2:1 honours degree or its international equivalent.
We require with the application, a short, (two-page maximum) statement explaining what specific interests in the area of Urban Issues have lead you to apply for this programme.
