    Master of planning with strength on urban development and housing?

    Hello everybody,

    Next year, I will take master of planning in Australia, but I havent decided the university yet. I'm splitted between Master of Urban and Regional Planning in UQ and Master of Urban Planning in Unimelb.I finished my undergraduate in planning too, and for my master study I want to have more insights in urban development and housing especially in housing finance.

    Which one of those two uni are better in the field? Or any suggestion for other universities? Thank you ver much

    Hi Nien,

    I recommend University of Melbourne - we have a great planning faculty. If you do the Master of Urban Planning, and specialise in 'Urban Development and Planning' you will do the subjects you want to study.

    Here's a link to the subjects you can choose from:

    In terms of housing, Melbourne is pretty exciting at the moment. Our population is growing, and the borders of Melbourne are eating into our agricultural production and farmland. Melbourne is at a critical turning point, and must choose between our former huge house with a backyard values, which the majority seem to be clinging onto with desperation, and urban consolidation - with all of the benefits that brings.

    There is nothing wrong with UQ and USyd either ;p
