Aims and Objectives

The MPhil in Planning, Growth and Regeneration provides relevant skills to professionals involved in managing local economic growth and regeneration, regulating land use, undertaking strategic planning and who seek an international perspective.

Course objectives

This MPhil is designed to equip students with the analytical skills required to:

  • Understand the factors that lead to variations in regional growth and development and to understand the consequences of regional imbalances in growth for resource management, land use and the environment;
  • Enable candidates to assess the scope for policy intervention to manage regional growth and identify the opportunities and constraints imposed by economic, social and institutional factors;
  • Design efficient and effective policies to manage growth at the regional level including enhancing the growth prospects of those regions that are currently experiencing relative decline and attenuating the adverse consequences of adverse growth on those regional systems that are expanding rapidly;
  • Understand how best to implement growth and regeneration policies, including planning and land use policies;
  • Evaluate policy achievement and monitor and assess the effectiveness of policy initiatives.

The course emphasises the importance of adopting a multidisciplinary approach both to understanding the nature of growth and regeneration problems as well as creating successful policy solutions.

Course Director

The Course Director for the MPhil in Planning, Growth and Regeneration is Dr Elisabete Silva. She is available to discuss with students issues specific to the Planning, Growth and Regeneration programme.
