Placement opportunities in Planning
Enhance your personal and professional development through access to our industry networks, which include well-known names such as Barton Willmore, Savills and Arup. Ask questions, be motivated and access the latest industry thinking through regular presentations from visiting experts. You’ll also collaborate on real-life project briefs set by acting practitioners, many of whom are based across the city’s diverse neighbourhoods.
Take the opportunity to gain valuable professional experience through a placement, whether it’s a full year or a shorter, more intensive placement with one of our partners. Past students have worked with Bristol City Council, Turley and GVA, amongst others.
Staff across the UWE Bristol Planning School work collaboratively with partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors to help generate and disseminate knowledge across the sector. Research activity in planning is led by dedicated centres across several key areas, including:
- Transport and Society
- Sustainable urban environments
- Governance of place
- Planning theory, policy and practice
- Smart cities transforming governance
In July 2020, UWE Bristol Planning School will host the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) Annual Congress, a platform for the exchange of research, education and best practice in planning.
