What effect will climate change have on our future cities and rural areas? How can you develop sustainable strategies and designs for new and existing urban systems? How do you deal with a complex built environment and related planning processes? Planners are asked to translate these kind of spatial transformations into new opportunities to enhance quality of life.

The Bachelor's degree programme in Spatial Planning and Design revolves around physical and institutional design. The course units are related to spatial planning and design, water management, infrastructure and environmental planning, spatial computer programs, complex decision-making and academic research.

You will work in virtual realities, but also go on excursions to see spatial projects in real life. There will be an opportunity to develop your personal interests via elective course units. You complete your Bachelor's degree with a research project. Excellent students can take part in a more in-depth programme at the Honours College, which has a wider range of topics.

Waarom aan de RUG?

The Bachelor's degree programme in Spatial Planning and Design is unique within the Netherlands. It covers a wide range of topics and gives students the opportunity to explore their own fields of interest within physical and institutional design. This degree programme gives you the opportunity to learn from internationally renowned and highly trained teachers.

The Faculty of Spatial Sciences takes a small-scale approach and we help our students to learn how to work independently. You will be assigned to a mentor group together with other first-year students whom you will get to know very well. Your mentor is a senior student who can teach you all the ins and outs of our faculty. You will also be assigned a tutor with whom you can discuss your study progress.
You will be able to use our Career Services during your programme. For more information: http://www.rug.nl/frw/education/careers-company-frw/

study abroad
Every year dozens students of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences go on exchange with a foreign university to take electives and/or write their thesis. The faculty has exchange arrangements with universities in Europe, New-Zealand and the USA.

Learning Communities: visit to the North/South subway line in Amsterdam

First year bachelor student Arnout de Haan about the first Learning Community activity.For our first Learning Community activity of the year we visited the North/South subway line in Amsterdam.

A former project manager showed a short film about the plans for the North/South line and how this new subway should be realized. The beginning of the presentation showed that many economic and technical setbacks were faced during this project. All these setbacks have led to the planned opening of the North South line in 2018 (10 years later than initially planned!)...
We all got a helmet, a pair of boots and a jacket on for safety. After this we were shown a part of the subway line which still was still under construction. After the tour we got the opportunity to ask some questions and we made a nice group photo. As first year students this was a fun way to learn something relevant to our study programme and got an first impression about where we might end up later in the work field.Read more about the Learning Communities at Spatial Sciences.

Involvement in study-related committees is a great opportunity

There are lots of opportunities for doing activities related to your degree programme.

In my first year, I was a member of the ‘first-year committee’ of Faculty association Ibn Battuta. I organized parties and excursions together with nine other first-year students and a member of the board. It’s a great way to meet new people, and I am still close to some of the committee members. I am now a member of the Student Advisory Council, where students get a chance to use their knowledge of urban planning...
I think getting involved in study-related committees and jobs is a great opportunity to learn more about all the things are going on around the degree programme.
