Course description

The BA in Town & Country Planning (BTCP) is a three-year degree providing you with basic academic and professional training in town planning. The curriculum is the same as for the four-year undergraduate masters in Town and Country Planning (MTCP) offered by our School, but students finish their degree after three years. At the end of the third year you may choose to continue to Masters level if you wish. The programme covers a wide range of subject areas and uses a diversity of teaching and learning methods involving individual self-learning and groups. The first year of the degree is in common with all other undergraduate programmes in Planning and Landscape and you may choose to switch to any of these programmes at the end of the first year if you wish.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2014 will be approximately £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £14,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
