From architecture and planning to economics and law, we’ll give you a broad understanding of the processes and practices involved in urban design. We’ll encourage you to develop your own unique approach to create the spaces in which we live, work and relax.
The urban design discipline lies somewhere between planning and architecture. It’s concerned with conceiving and combining buildings, amenities and open spaces in ways that are logical, useful and give a sense of place.

Many disciplines and issues are involved, from the technical to environmental, societal to economic. Our course will give you the education and training you need to practice urban design and develop your own distinct vision.

Through a series of modules you’ll explore the profession’s key challenges, while developing your technical, commercial and management skills. There’s particular reference to the six ‘RCE’ Eastern England cities and the design challenges they present.

Our course meets the educational requirements of the Urban Design Group and Urban Design Alliance.

Modules & assessmentCore modules
  • Site Studies and Urban DesignGain an understanding of the inseparable nature of the place and its context, a 'sense of place', and how this affects the design of new buildings and place-making that contribute to the built environment. 
  • Sustainability and Environmental ManagementHere, you’ll look at wider developments in environmental protection and how these affect construction, as well as how construction affects them. You’ll also examine the demands that greater environmental awareness places on the built environment.
  • Sustainable Place ShapingClimate change, sustainable development and the effective consideration of community interests and impacts are at the top of the political agenda for action at local and global levels. 
  • Project Management SystemsThis module establishes the framework for the management of projects and develops a comprehensive understanding of the role and functions of the project manager throughout the project life-cycle, from inception to completion, together with the diverse range of resources and activities that the project manager must plan, co-ordinate and control to achieve a successful project.
  • Urbanism and CultureThe phenomenon of urbanism has been evolving from the earliest pre-historical settlements. Gain an understanding of the history and development for urban design, together with a critical consideration of contemporary urban design.
  • Urban Design StrategiesUrban design has continued to rise on political agendas and plays an essential part within the cultural shift from a passive towards a pro-active 'spatial' planning system seeking successful and high quality 'place-making'. 
  • Sustainable EnergyDevelop an in-depth understanding of sustainable energy systems and energy efficient options for development. A major concern is that of global warming resulting from rising carbon dioxide levels from electrical generation, heating and transport. 
  • Research Design and MethodsGain an in-depth understanding of the theories and methods of research and research design and develop a theoretical and practical foundation in research for your major project/dissertation.
  • Major ProjectThis module supports students in the preparation and submission of a Master's stage project, dissertation or artefact. The Module provides the opportunity for students to select and explore in-depth, a topic that is of interest and relevant to their course in which they can develop a significant level of expertise.

We’ll assess you through a combination of patchworks, portfolios, reports, essays, design project material, model-making and your performance during group work.
