Urban Ecological Planning
Urban Ecological Planning (UEP) is a practice based program that enables students to develop skills and knowledge to address complex urban issues in rapidly changing social, cultural, political and environmental contexts. The program stresses on an integrated approach to strategic spatial change, with a specific focus on participatory, inclusive and developmental planning practice.
The programme provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.
Admission is open to both Norwegian and International students. The current round of admission was open in autumn 2016, with the following application deadlines:
Non-EU/non-EEA students: 1 December 2016
EU / EEA / Norwegian students: 1 March 2017
Past students are currently successfully placed in various profiles across the globe. Many go on to become development professionals both in NGOs and government service, while others pursue careers in academia and the private sector.
