Master in Urban and Regional Planning (with RTPI accreditation) - Máster en Planificación Urbana y Regional
The PgDip Town Planning is the final year of the Royal Town Planning Institute accredited undergraduate entry course, and therefore is only available to students who have already studied an accredited planning degree. Students from other universities may have to study a special programme of units and transfers between universities are possible but will need to be agreed in advance.

- Licenciado/Título de Ingeniero/Título de Arquitecto, average 6.0-6.9 (old grading system), or 1.5 in new grading system
For Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses the normal entry qualification is an Honours degree or equivalent.
