Redefine urban design by joining the next generation of urban planners at the University of Birmingham Dubai

Apply now for MSc Urban Planning at the University of Birmingham Dubai to join the next generation of urban planners and address contemporary challenges faced by urban regions.

Drawing upon the University’s world leading expertise in Planning, Environmental Science, Public Health and Critical Urban Studies, this brand new programme will provide the necessary understanding, skills and knowledge that planners in government, private enterprises, NGOs and communities will need to provide innovative solutions to complex issues that impact upon a diverse range of stakeholders.

Dubai is the ideal place to study Urban Planning given its proposed expansion under the Dubai 2040 Urban Masterplan. Full use of the city will be made as a ‘living laboratory’ in our teaching, and assignments will engage with real world examples. Teaching will be provided by faculty based in Dubai and by leading experts from the University’s Birmingham campus. Tutorial support will be integral to your learning and your independent dissertation study will be supported through one-to-one supervision and dissertation lab classes.

You will engage with Government agencies, such as the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority which will be based on the campus. There will also be masterclasses from leading global urban development companies (eg, ARUP, Atkins) with the potential for internships, as well as the option of fieldwork in Kathmandu to learn from urban planning in a very different context.

From the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner who is challenged to think for yourself. Applications are now open for September 2021 entry.
