15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This unit provides students with the opportunity to explore and research the management and development of major cities, and is based on an in-depth case study and field visit to Seoul in the Republic of South Korea to enhance their understanding. The module will provide students with direct experience of the contemporary management and governance of sustainable and global urban development, with exposure to real practices and to the socio-economic and physical contexts experienced by the population of a major South-East Asian metropolitan area. The module contributes to students' transferable skills through teamwork, research design and implementation, overseas collaboration and presentation skills.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to a maximum of ten students (across both UG & PGT) as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding with Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG): Participating students to be selected through an open competition if necessary.
