Planning and Environment

PGR research in the Planning and Environment pathway covers a broad thematic range of topics related to the planning, development, and design of the natural and built environment. Research within the pathway addresses themes from the fields of urban, regional, and spatial planning, regeneration, environmental assessment/management, architecture, and real estate. Research has explored such themes in the North West region and across other European and global locations. As many of these topics are related to applied disciplines, close links to practice are common, including the use of case studentships. For candidates applying for a 1+3 studentship, dedicated research masters courses and other research training opportunities are available at the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool. Research students are also able to draw on supervisory support and input as relevant from across the two institutions involved in the pathway.
