The RMIT School of Architecture and Design has launched a new Master of Urban Design (coursework by project) affiliated with RMIT Architecture. Urban Design at RMIT advances the role of design and innovative practice in shaping future cities in response to rapid urban change locally and globally. Intensive urban studios are offered in Melbourne, Ho Chi Minh City and Barcelona. Applicants who have completed a Master of Architecture or Master of Landscape Architecture (or equivalent) are eligible to complete this program in one year (full time or two years part time). The Master of Urban Design program is now open for applications for the Semester 1 2014 intake.
