Are you an urban policy or planning or housing professional ambitious to progress your career in this field? UNSW’s new Graduate Certificate in Advanced City Policy and Practice could help you do just that. ACPP is a bite-sized post-grad program targeted towards mid-career staff in relevant government agencies, local councils, consultancies and NGOs. It will enable you to bring the latest thinking about cities into your workplace.
ACPP is a taught program of four courses that can be studied part-time so that, studying one course per semester, you can complete in 1.5 years. Then, if this has whetted your appetite, you can transition into a related UNSW Masters program, with the ACPP units already to your credit. The four Master degrees linked to the ACPP pathway are: Urban Policy and Strategy; Urban Renewal and Housing; Sustainable Built Environment and City Analytics.
All ACPP courses are taught intensively (Fridays and Saturdays) for the best possible fit with your working life. If all of this sounds attractive, talk to your employer about sponsorship. Or do it yourself – the fees can be tax deductible.
