Course Description

PLANET Europe is a joint Master's Programme of Radboud University, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Cardiff University that prepares graduates for a career in strategic spatial planning in Europe. It is designed for students who would like to better understand the influences of the European Union and international developments on space, the environment and the economy and who would like to address large-scale spatial challenges such as climate change or transnational river management in their future careers. The programme allows a specialisation in either European spatial planning and sustainable development or European spatial planning and regional economic development, and leads to an internationally recognised double degree (MSc) from leading European planning schools.

Career Prospects

The PLANET Europe joint Master’s programme will provide graduates with substantive knowledge about the influences of EU and international policy on spatial development, and with the theoretical and methodological tools to shape the EU territorial cohesion agenda.

Graduates will develop cross-national communication skills and be able to work in interdisciplinary and multi-cultural teams. Such highly skilled graduates who are well prepared for the new challenges of undertaking spatial and environmental planning in the EU will be an important asset for the European labour market and employers in the field.

Graduates from this Masters programme are expected to work in EU institutions, national and regional public authorities, private companies and NGOs dealing with spatial planning, regional policy and environmental planning. Because of the international orientation and the thorough academic foundation of the Masters programme, graduates are also well prepared to pursue an academic career.
