About this Unit
This Urban Planning Placement Project unit provides Master of Urban Management and Planning and Master of Planning students with an understanding of the planning/urban management workplace. Students are placed with local planning or urban management employers to work on a variety of planning tasks. Placements are structured for student engagement in professional work in planning. Placement agencies ensure that students are supervised by experienced planners, are mentored through site visits and work on planning projects in a professional capacity. Agreements with supervisors and clear communication lines are set to clarify student engagement and their involvement in meaningful professional tasks that contribute to an authentic learning experience, rather than simply unpaid or irrelevant labour.
