Introduction to the programme
International perspectives on urban challenges and futures
Nordic urban planning has recently become the focus of intensified interest from urbanists worldwide who are seeking to learn from innovative approaches to sustainability, liveability, mobility, ‘smart’ cities, empowerment, welfare and more.
This programme provides a unique opportunity to study such approaches to planning cities and urban life in a global context with leading researchers from the universities of Roskilde (Denmark), Malmö (Sweden) and Tromsø (The Arctic University of Norway).
By moving between three universities and countries, you will develop international and interdisciplinary perspectives on urban planning and development. You will also become skilled at working collaboratively and imaginatively with diverse communities, organisations, companies and municipalities.
Through conducting your own research in groups and individually, you will become experienced in qualitative and creative methods as well as techniques of spatial visualisation and geographical information systems. You will further gain first-hand insights into planning problems and potential solutions.

The programme is based across the three universities with opportunities to specialise at each. Core components are in Semester 1 (at Roskilde University) and Semester 3 (at Malmö University and University of Tromsø – The Arctic University of Norway). In Semester 2 you choose a track at any one university, while in Semester 4 you decide where to conduct your Master thesis. The programme leads to a joint degree from all three universities.

Applicants with other bachelor’s degree than those listed as qualifying for admission
If you hold another bachelor’s degree than the ones mentioned in this document, you can still apply for admission to the master’s programme. In order to gain admission you must have a relevant bachelor’s degree with qualifications corresponding to one of the bachelor’s degrees qualifying for admission. When you have applied, the university will assess the academic content of your bachelor’s degree.

If the university assesses that your bachelor’s degree is relevant for admission to the master’s programme which you have applied for but that you lack few essential qualifications, the university may decide that you have to complete prerequisite studies amounting to no more than 30 ECTS points in order to be admitted. You must complete prerequisite studies before being enrolled in the master’s programme.
