Description

Advertisement

This course has been running for two decades and attracts a wide range of students including

  • graduates looking for a vocational foundation in urban regeneration
  • practitioners who want to broaden their knowledge and understanding through academic study.

The award is accredited by several key sector professional institutes including the Chartered Institute of Housing, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Royal Town Planning Institute.

The course is designed to help you further your academic understanding having experienced practice, or prepare for a role in responding to the challenges facing the UK and the world including • urban decline and success • urban segregation • urban competitiveness • urban sustainability • urban management.

These challenges require more than restoring and rebuilding the physical fabric of cities and their heritage. They need

  • a new local and regional economic base to replace the one that has been lost; the protection and improvement of environments and places
  • the restoration of hope to communities that have been impacted by socioeconomic change
  • education and training to assist people in a fast changing world of work.

These are big challenges requiring solutions and responses at all geographical scales, from neighbourhood to supra-national. They are challenges that require 'out of the box' thinking, intellectual rigour, ability to collaborate across groups and sectors, and an understanding of the contributions from disciplines like • economics • political science • geography • sociology • surveying • urban design • urban planning • finance and management. It is this complexity combined with necessity that makes the regeneration field so exciting.

This course offers a good balance of theoretical and practical debates and we constantly update it to remain at the forefront of new ideas and developments. You are immersed in the real world of practice, taking part in many real-life case studies and projects. You are also involved in theoretical discussion to consider practical regeneration solutions.

The course concentrates on gaining professional skills for regeneration and knowledge in

• regeneration policy
• planning and development process
• economic regeneration
• leading regeneration
• social regeneration
• alternative approaches to regeneration.

There is an optional module where you choose between an international field study week, or a practice-based consultancy project. We also offer most modules on this course as stand-alone short courses.

Course Content

Core modules

Regeneration and policy

This module examines urban regeneration and residential policy at city, regional and national scales. This includes the historical and contemporary development of policy and management practice, and policy rationale, delivery and impact.

Economic Regeneration

This module attends to economic theory, mainstream and (non radical) alternative economic development, and key economic development topics.

Planning and development process
In this module you operate in a professional environment to understand the planning and legal framework, the role of financial appraisal and complexity of relationships in the design and development process of land and property markets.

Leading regeneration

In this module you advance your ability to communicate ideas and arguments in relation to both the shifting nature of housing and regeneration organisations and partnerships, and to appraise effective operational leadership and change management strategies.

Social regeneration

This module explores the theoretical challenges and practical realities of exclusion, division and lack of participation in urban localities, and models to an inclusive approach to social regeneration policy and practice.

Alternative approaches to regeneration

This module develops a radical critique of the mainstream (neoliberal and social democratic) approaches to regeneration. You critically explore ‘regeneration’ and notions such as anti-austerity, resistance and sustainability.
