M. of U. Plan. in Developing Countries
The course is concerned with the theory and practice of urban planning in societies undergoing rapid economic, social, environmental and spatial change. It examines the phenomenon and processes of rapid urban growth and the nature of planning interventions within the broader framework of political, economic (including macro-economic) and cultural factors, contrasting development paradigms and the process of globalisation. Emphasis is placed on institutional aspects of planning and management interventions in the urban sector and the scope of various policy instruments and planning modes to manage the emerging spatial patterns, impacts and processes of urban growth. Distinctive features of this programme are its focus on: urban land markets and their dynamics, particularly in the context of shelter provision for low-income groups; urban management and issues of governance and development co-ordination; community empowerment and stakeholder engagement. <br /> Oxford Brookes has offered a graduate-planning programme in Oxford for over 40 years, and is acknowledged as a leading provider in the UK. We have over 50 teaching and research staff. Our reputation is built on: our student centredness; our teaching and research excellence; innovation and service to the community and professional organisations; and our educational philosophy, which seeks to embrace planning education in its widest sense. <br /> Teaching, learning and assessment<br /> Learning methods include lectures, directed reading, workshops, seminars, practical and project work. Some modules include site visits and fieldwork, which provide you with direct experience of practical and current issues. <br /> Teaching is organised on a module-credit basis, involving approximately 200 hours of student effort and approximately 36 hours of staff contact, normally delivered through a three-hour teaching block over a 12-week period. <br /> Each course module is assessed individually, generally on the quality of written or design work, and to some extent on verbal presentations. Assessment methods may include essays, seminar papers, formal written examinations, in-class tests, project work, design and verbal presentations, workshops, simulations, and practical exercises. <br /> Course content<br /> The course is offered at three levels: a master’s degree (MSc), a postgraduate diploma (PGDip) and a postgraduate certificate (PGCert). <br /> The MSc programme is based on the completion of the following compulsory modules, plus elective specialisations and a 15,000-word master’s dissertation. <br /> Compulsory element: <br /> Development and Urbanisation examines the theories, processes and consequences of rapid urbanisation in the developing world within the context of economic development and social change. The changing paradigms of development – modernisation, growth with equity, market enablement – are examined. The emerging spatial distribution of cities and the city building process is explored, including rural-urban migration and social transformation, as well as the contrasting processes of production and the informal sector in the urban economy The module reviews concepts such as: dependency; basic needs and equity; institutional access and resource distribution; labelling and target groups; urban vulnerability; gender issues in development. The role of the state in development and governance and the role of civil society in new forms of urban management and decentralisation are considered. A project involves the preparation of an urbanisation profile for selected countries to explore the practical outcomes of these processes. <br /> Urban Land Policy and Urban Management examines the processes of urban land development under conditions of rapid urban growth. The concept and development of land policy is examined. Major issues addressed include: the development of urban land markets and ‘sub-market’/informal processes particularly in relation to low-income housing group needs; land availability and land supply; tenure options; land management; planning and co-ordination, investment recovery, private sector development in both formal and informal sectors. These factors will be considered in the context of the options available to provide affordable and satisfactory housing. Urban management and planning policies and resources to support rapid urban development are explored alongside an exploration of the scope for enhancing or developing new approaches to urban planning. Emphasis is placed on the institutional frameworks. <br /> Globalisation, Environment and Development examines globalisation processes and global environmental problems and their relationship with the development process. The module reviews theories of globalisation and the structure of the global system; global population growth, global urbanisation and industrialisation trends and policies; the globalisation of trade, aid, investment and debt; the revolution in global transport and communications; the changing role of global institutions; the emerging geopolitics of the post-Cold War era; and a range of global environmental issues The policy aspects of these various issues will also be examined. <br /> Policy in Practice: Programme and Project Implementation provides a practice-based exploration of urban projects and programmes. It covers aspects such as: feasibility studies, the project cycle, project and programme evaluation (particularly in relation to low-income group housing needs), implementation resources together with an understanding of institutional capacity building, community-based organisations and the development of community-led sustainable solutions to the needs of the urban poor, concepts of affordability and cost recovery. <br /> Research Methods examines and advances students' knowledge of research methods and methodology. It provides a forum for debate about research as well as giving students the opportunity to gain practical skills. These general research issues are complemented by a focus on policy research. Through the use of examples of on-going research in the department, students' abilities to critically evaluate research and the role of researchers are developed. Within the course structure, students are able to explore and gain support in research and research design within their own area of specialisation. The module forms an introduction to the dissertation. <br /> MSc students are offered choice and flexibility in terms of electives, of which two must be chosen from the following: <br /> World of Refugees <br /> Globalisation and Global Institutions <br /> Cities and Violence <br /> Project Design and the Art of Practice <br /> Principles of Development Practice <br /> Anthropology of Shelter <br /> Principles of Environmental Assessment and Management <br /> GIS and Environmental Modelling <br /> Independent Study. <br /> Please note that not all electives may be available in any given year. The PGDip programme is based on the completion of the following compulsory modules as in the MSc programme: <br /> Development and Urbanisation <br /> Urban Land Policy and Urban Management <br /> Globalisation, Environment and Development <br /> Policy in Practice: Programme and Project Implementation. <br /> A similar choice of two elective modules from the same array as the MSc programme is required. <br /> Quality<br /> In the last Teaching Quality Assessment, the Department of Planning scored 24/24. The School of the Built Environment also scored 4 (out of 5*) in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). <br /> Teaching staff are drawn primarily from the Department of Planning but with some contributions from other faculty of the School of the Built Environment. Core staff are active in research and publication in the subject area. <br /> Admission<br /> The course attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities. Applicants are welcome from any relevant academic disciplines, as well as those in work and seeking continuing professional development. Admission is normally open to those with a good undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent) or other professional qualification relevant to planning and development, or an appropriate professional background. <br /> The course provides the opportunity to attain formal academic training and qualifications based on a diversity of professional backgrounds. Applications will also be considered from those who seek to formalise their prior experiential learning or qualifications. <br /> Contacts<br /> Senior Postgraduate Administrator<br /> e:<br /> t: +44 (0) 1865 483684<br /> w: <br /> Conditions of acceptance<br /> When you accept our offer you agree to the conditions of acceptance.
