In our densely populated country, each square metre has an owner and a purpose. Much thought is given to how we should organise and manage our environment. Does it still meet the requirements of all users? Or do we need to work on it?

In the Bachelor’s programme Spatial and Environmental Planning you will learn all about this subject. Do you love spending time in the outdoors? Are you fascinated by geography, biology or economics? And would you like to design a park or, for instance, an estate? Choose Spatial and Environmental Planning!


About the programme

In the Bachelor’s programme Spatial and Environmental Planning, greenery, design and management coincide, as many elements are involved in developing our living environment. You will need to take landscape, agriculture, nature and people into account, and will be dealing with many different stakeholders, from local authorities and provinces to conservationists and inhabitants. The challenge is to translate all wishes and requirements into one design. Subsequently, you will need to ensure a smooth implementation, with an eye for budgeting and planning.  All these processes are dealt with in the study programme.
