MSc Transport Planning (Scholarships available)



This vocational Masters programme is designed for students from a wide range of backgrounds and equips them for a professional career.  Transport Planners play a key role in business and in society, by ensuring that transport systems are efficient, equitable, safe and environmentally sound. To do so they need to understand the core principles, techniques and concepts which underpin the discipline. This Masters programme engages students with a highly applied and practical subject area, which is both academically rigorous and vocationally rewarding.
