Clearing up the Environment: A new option for your future career


If you care about the environment and want an accredited degree, there is one option you might not have yet considered.

Birmingham City University still have places available on their newly designed Planning and Development programme, the only course at the University that has the environment as a core component of the curriculum and fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute.

Building on the latest environmental research, academics at Birmingham City University are training planners fit for the future needs of the profession as well as providing challenging career choices for those who value the environment.

Alister Scott, Professor of Environmental and Spatial Planning at Birmingham City University, said: “Planning is not the enemy of enterprise as the government have claimed; rather it is the engine of our recovery yet also the mechanism by which we make decisions about the future of our land. I cannot think of a more exciting and demanding career.

“At Birmingham City University we equip you with the skills to do, to think and to challenge and boldly go where few courses currently go. Our world leading research gives you a competitive advantage in the job market.

“The new course is breaking new ground in putting the environment at the heart of the curriculum where it rightly belongs. So whether you are a geographer or a countryside manager, planning is one option you may not have yet thought of.”
