Thread: UK certification after American undergrad?

  1. #1

    UK certification after American undergrad?

    I am currently studying for a BA in Urban Studies with a minor in International Relations in the United States, and I'm interested in sustainable development/planning and consulting. I will most likely head back to the UK after finishing undergrad in the US.

    I'm interested in doing graduate study in urban planning (focusing on sustainability) in the UK, preferably at UCL or LSE.

    I understand, however, that most 1-year master's programs are suitable for people with professional planning degrees and accreditations.

    My question is, what should someone educated in the US and looking to do graduate school and planning in the UK do to obtain professional accreditation?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi there...

    You should check out the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) website to see what sort of educational opportunities are available and how you can be a chartered planner. They have a list of accredited programmes and what sort of backgrounds you need to qualify for them.
