Postgraduate diplomas are educational programs designed for students who have already earned a degree and seek further study in a particular field. Although students typically choose programs in the same content area as their degree, some students earn postgraduate diplomas to pursue a new field.

What is a postgraduate diploma in urban planning? Urban planning is the study of the technical, social and political aspects of land development for communities. This subject deals with the design of rural, suburban and urban developments while optimizing the use of resources, such as water and air. Courses in this program can include the study of environmental issues, conservation, population trends and public welfare specifically involved in urban planning. Some courses may concentrate on mathematics, statistics and sociology.

Urban planning students are often extremely analytical, which can benefit them in a variety of careers. An advanced education in this field can also help students become more strategic while developing strong problem-solving skills.

Some students will choose to earn a postgraduate diploma because these programs can take a shorter amount of time to earn, which means they may also cost less. However, the cost of any type of educational degree or diploma can vary depending on the institution. Prospective students should research schools for more tuition information.

Careers in urban planning are numerous for students with a bachelor’s degree, but the potential for higher paying jobs may increase with an advanced education. Possible jobs in this field include working as a city planner, building manager, inspector or transportation planner. Some students of urban planning can focus on environmental issues by becoming natural resource managers or environmental managers for private businesses or governments.  

In countries across the world, various postgraduate diploma programs are offered by a multitude of universities and other educational institutions. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
