Studying at the EUP

The Paris School of Urban Planning (EUP) offers a wide range of training programs and is working in collaboration with many partners to give its students and trainees the ability to build their training journey comprehensively, based on the various evolutions of their professional careers. At the heart of this offer, the Master's degree in Urban Planning and Development allows students to consolidate their basic knowledge in urban planning during the first year (Master 1 - M1) and deepens their professional practice in general or in one specific theme during the second year (Master 2 - M2).

Three Reasons to Study at the EUP

  The transdisciplinarity and professionalization of its training offers:

The EUP offers innovative educational activities focused on transdisciplinarity and professional situations.

 International perspective:

Opening the EUP internationally is one of its major ambitions. Student mobility encouraged, more and more international partnerships, and a Masters 2 specialized in international expertise.

 Professional integration after graduation:

The EUP follows developments in professional practice through integration surveys. One of the latest surveys (2020) revealed an employment rate of 87% of the 2017-2018 graduates (24 months after their graduation).

The Master's Degree in Urban Planning and Development

The Master in urban Planning and Development offers a complete training, leaning on the transversality of complementary disciplinary approaches and on an expertise on the required skills, today and in a timeframe of twenty years, in the professions of urban planning, and assistance in territorial dynamics.

This training gives initial and continuous training students the means to meet the contemporary and future urban challenges in a relevant and innovating way.

The purpose of the first year (M1) is to acquire a common base of knowledge and know-hows specific to the area of urbanism and urban planning to students coming from various academic departments and geographic areas.

For the second year (M2), the students choose one specialization course among the eight available.
