In today’s complex and rapidly changing world, with the threats posed by climate change, economic crisis and rapid urban growth, planners face the challenge of creating places that combine environmental quality with a vibrant economy, quality of life and distributive justice.
This two-year professional planning degree develops the requisite conceptual knowledge and practical skills required by planners in this increasingly complex environment.
You will develop an understanding of the administrative, legal and policy frameworks in which spatial planning operates and the social, political,
economic and environmental challenges facing planning. You will become familiar with the use and application of GIS methodologies and will
develop skills for plan making and transportation planning.
Depending on your interests, you choose to specialise in either development and design, or environmental planning.
Full Time option suitable for:
Domestic(EEA) applicants: Yes
International (Non EEA) applicants currently residing outside of the EEA Region. Yes
Graduates of this Masters are to be found working in roles such as a professional planner, GIS consultant, researcher, policy advisor, property consultant or community delelopment co-ordinator. These graduates find employment with a wide variety of companies including international planning institutes, national planning agencies, government departments, local authorities, transportation agencies, planning consultancy firms, or utility companies to name but a few.

I had always heard stories about the great culture, beautiful landscape, and hospitality of the Irish people, so Ireland had always been a place I wanted to visit. When it came to choosing a masters programme, Ireland was the first place I looked. I chose the MRUP at UCD, because of my interest in the module titles and the international accreditation by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). The focus of the school on international examples and the opportunity to write a thesis about any planning related subject was also of interest to me. The knowledge and quality of teaching within the MRUP programme really stood out and the diverse subject matter covered throughout the course gives a great deal of flexibility for future interests and job opportunities.
