For most students the Master’s is the final stage of a long educational career. It will be also the shortest
one, lasting only one or two years. It is the last step on your way to a professional career. This
consideration dictates the character of the Master’s program. The program starts with a consolidation
and update of the students’ knowledge already acquired from earlier specializations, but most time is
dedicated to the application of academic research in the professional field, sometimes in combination
with an internship.

The Master’s programs of the Department of Human Geography and Planning are coordinated by the
Academic School Human Geography and Planning. An Admissions Committee decides on the admission
of students with a Utrecht Human Geography and Planning Bachelor’s degree. This committee also
decides the admission for students with other educational qualifications, usually after they have
completed a pre-Master’s program.

The Master’s program in Urban and Economic Geography (Research Master) is a two-year program
offered by the Graduate School of the faculty and admission is based on selection.

In this guide you will find specific information about your Master’s program. Information about
services, the faculty, the education and examination regulation and the schedule of all the courses in
the different Master’s programs can be found in the latter part of the guide.

I hope you will experience an inspiring and successful master year!

Course registration and rules

The academic year is divided into four periods. In every period, a student may take part in two courses
in parallel, each course accounting for 7.5 credits (approximately 200 hours of workload). The courses
(each having different time slots) are scheduled in such way that students are able to follow the
courses in tandem. Participation in all courses is dependent on registration which should be done
through OSIRIS Student
Failure to register on time for a course means that a student is not entitled to take part. In the course
calendar (see appendix), you will find an overview of all courses offered by the SGPL Master’s program
and accompanying time-slots.

Time slots
Each course is placed in a time slot. All the contact activities of a course are scheduled within that slot.
The time slots are:
A: Monday morning, Wednesday morning
B: Tuesday morning, Thursday afternoon
C: Monday afternoon, Thursday morning
D: Wednesday afternoon, Friday whole day
On Tuesday afternoon there are no scheduled lectures, but it can be used for individual discussions
(with a teacher). The time slots make it possible to combine courses and to plan your program.

Academic periods
Lectures and tutorials are given in two semesters. Each semester comprises two periods, each of which
covers nine or ten weeks. The following is the schedule planned for the academic year 2017-2018

Period        Period dates                                  Remarks

1              3 September 2018      - 9November 2018

2              12 November 2018 - 1 February 2019           week 52 & week 1 vacation

3              4 February 2019 - 19 april 2019

4              22 April 2019 -    12 June 2019

The two-year Master’s program Geographical Information Management and Applications (GIMA) is
structured differently because of the cooperation with ITC, TUD and WUR. This program is conducted in
three periods per academic year with no scheduled time-slots. Furthermore, the program involves
distance-learning with contact weeks.

Registration for the Master’s program courses
1. Students are required to register for every course. (Note: Students from other universities are
   automatically enrolled for the course with which they begin the Master’s program.)
2. Timely registration will ensure placement compulsory courses.
3. Registration for an elective course does not guarantee placement. In instances of over-subscription,
   course participants are selected at random or based on suitability. Depending on the nature of the
   course, either of these methods will be used to determine placement.
4. Students are expected to participate in the courses as laid out in the course requirements. The first
   session is always mandatory.
5. A student who registers for a course but later decides to drop it is required to de-register. This is
   allowed up to two weeks after a course commences, but preferably earlier considering other
   students who want to take in the course. If de-registration is not done timely, the student will be

Faculty of Geosciences – Department Human Geography and Spatial Planning
given an unsatisfactory grade for that particular course. Additionally, the student will be put at the
   bottom of the list of course participants for future participation (see also point 3).
6. A one-time registration is required for thesis and/or internship. This may be done throughout the
7. Students should register for courses via OSIRIS Student during the stipulated registration period.
   Post-registration is only possible for courses where places are still available. This also holds for
   compulsory courses.

   For period    Registration dates                      post-registration

   1             28 May t/m 24 June 2018                 20 and 21 August 2018

   2             17 September t/m30 September 2018 22 and 23 October 2018

   3             29 October t/m 25 November 2018         21 and 22 January 2019

   4             28 January t/m 24 February 2019         1 and 2 April 2019

8. Lecturers have no say over matters of registration or de-registration.
9. Students can register a maximum of two courses per term (master courses thesis and internship
   excluded). If you want to participate in a third course you have to ask permission at the Education
   Director. Ask this permission before the registration period of that course. He considers particular
   personal circumstances and your results so far.

Didactic aspects and mutual expectations
The following principles are applied:
• activating education
• student’s obligation to participate actively
• multiple assessment in every course
These points are further elaborated below.

Activating education
This particular approach depends to a large extent on a student’s ability to activate his/her learning
process by carrying out individual and group assignments and exercises, participation in debates or
simulations, and the application of methodology taught. Activating education is also sought through
active support from lecturers, instructions, manuals and feedback about students’ performance. As far
as possible, work is carried out in small groups.

Students’ obligation to participate actively
The Department strives to offer an inspiring and highly conducive study environment for the students.
The Department, in cooperation with its students, is committed to realize the maximum acquisition of
knowledge. All lecturers and support staff share a similar philosophy that if students are fully
committed to their studies, individual courses can be successfully completed. The Department applies
the following rules to ensure that students observe their obligations:
• the study guide clearly spells out the various activities for which students are obliged to attend.
• students must attend compulsory sessions; attendance is registered.
• students whose attendance in the compulsory sessions is less than 75 per cent have no right to
   complete the course, irrespective of the reasons for their absence.
• Students who do not attend the non-compulsory sessions are responsible to find out from their
   fellow students what material was covered and what arrangements were made during those
   meetings. “I don’t know, because I wasn’t there” is not an excuse.
• Handing in an assignment after the due date can result in a lower grade.
• Absence during assessments is a serious matter. There is no automatic right to do a re-sit or repeat

exam. It is up to the lecturer to decide whether circumstances justify a second chance.
•   Cheating and plagiarism are not tolerated. These include submitting work that has been done by
    someone else, copying from sources without due acknowledgement and so on. A lecturer must
    report instances of cheating and plagiarism to the Examination Committee which can impose severe

Multiple assessments in every course
Students are assessed in multiple ways in every course. A student’s final grade for a course does not
only depend on the final examination which often is a written exam. There are other tests and
assessments (and sometimes the opportunity to do a resit) during a course.

Unsuccessful/successful result and effort
The formal rules for successful completion of courses are found in the Education and Examination
Regulations (O.E.R.). An average of less than 4,00 before rounding results in failure to complete the
course without possibilities to repair the result. The entire course must be followed again. If the result
is between 4,00 and 5,49 before rounding and the student has made every effort to successfully
complete the course, he/she will be given one opportunity to take an additional or substitute test at the
end of the next period or in academic holidays (Christmas, Summer). In case of a successful outcome
the result of the course will be a 6 regardless of the grade obtained for the substitute test.

‘Every effort to successfully complete the course’ means no absence of compulsory lectures and
activities, assignments must have been handed in in time, participation in all the tests, etc. The
additional test is not a right; rather, it should be seen as a favour.

4              week 28*

*Due to the summer holidays, these resits may not be graded within 10 working days.

There are some general rules for the lectures:
• A lecture usually comprises two sessions of 45 minutes with a 15-minute break in between.
• Be in time, and if not, be very silent in entering the room, if possible, through the back door.
• Listen carefully, do not make noise, make notes, it could be part of the examination.
• Switch off your phone.
• Eating is not permitted.
• During a test you must be able to show your student card.
• The first lecture of a course is always compulsory.

Fraud and plagiarism
Fraud and plagiarism will be strongly punished. Look at the regulations in the Education and
Examination Regulations (O.E.R.). Make your own work; do not use the work of other people in an
illegal way (without referencing); do not copy from Internet without mentioning the source; do not use
long citations, but analyse in your own words, etc.

Management and educational organization

Faculty of Geosciences – Department Human Geography and Spatial Planning
The management of the University is divided in three levels: the University, the faculties and the
departments. Each level involves the participation of the scientific, technical and administrative staff as
well as the students. Look at the website for names and addresses.

Your opinion counts
The department is very interested in the opinion of the students on the programs. Participation of
students in the board, the Education Committee and the student organization is important. Each course
will be evaluated. This gives you the possibility to give your opinion in order to improve the quality of
the program.

If it is impossible to solve your problems with your lecturers or the student representatives, than there
are possibilities to express your formal complaints:
• Individual or as group you can submit your complaints to the Board of Examiners or the educational
     organization of the Department.
• If you do not agree with a decision of the Board of Examiners you can appeal to the Examination
     Appeals Board. This must be done within four weeks of the decision of the Board of Examiners. More
     information can be given by the Student Service Centre in het Bestuurgebouw.

Master programme Spatial Planning
Dr. Patrick Witte
Student website:

Spatial planning in Utrecht is understood as any legitimate intervention in the future allocation and
distribution of land and other spatial resources in and for cities. Therefore, the Master’s Spatial Plan-
ning Programme trains you to balance conflicting interests on urban land. Students learn balancing
conflicting interests in urban land, preparing public policy for sustainable cities, managing governance
processes in the urban environment, and developing concepts for a sustainable use of resources.

The programme in Utrecht prepares students to approach issues such as real estate development in
difficult economic times, facilitate sustainable urban (re)development, find answers to changing
socio-spatial demands (such as demographic or climate change), deal with complexities of metropol-
itan areas, or governance of environmental changes in an uncertain climate, and other. Therefore, the
content of the study focuses on a broad training to learn students
• analysing spatial problems with scientific methods;
• using existing knowledge and theories to find solutions;
• evaluating and prioritising alternative development options;
• governance and management of cities.

Although the master Spatial Planning is an academic master, it aims at bridging practice and research.
Therefore, links with practice and an internship-driven Master’s thesis are essential elements in the
study programme. The master Spatial Planning offers teaches an interdisciplinary and integrated
approach to planning. There is no specific track on sectoral aspects of spatial planning, but a broad and
interdisciplinary curriculum that embraces an integrated perspective to planning.

The Master’s program Spatial Planning has five central aims:
1. Students can analyze spatial problems with scientific methods
   This incorporates assisting students in developing an advanced academic attitude, knowledge and
   skills in their chosen specialization by offering an interactive learning environment inspired by the
   field of specialization and research activities of lecturers. This entails providing students with:
       a.         a critical attitude towards academic research and debate and an awareness of the role
                  and use of (academic) geographical knowledge in society;
       b.         knowledge and understanding of the research frontiers in spatial planning as well as
                  their applications in society;
       c.         research skills (advanced methods and techniques) for carrying out research in spatial
2. Students can use existing knowledge and theories to find solutions
   Students learn how to use planning theory purposefully to analyze, develop and support spatial
   planning in practice and research. Therefore, students learn…
       a.         … to raise and discuss relevant questions in planning (i.e. relating the use of
                  knowledge, market mechanism, ethics, etc.) and explore the answers to these ques-
       b.         … to conduct a literature-based research in the field of spatial planning.
       c.         … to discuss academic arguments and theories in order to systematically and
                  self-reliantly inquire a certain planning topic.
       d.         … evaluating and prioritising alternative development options.
3. Students can critically reflect on sustainable spatial development
   Students discuss the sustainable development of cities and regions and develop skills to critically

Faculty of Geosciences – Department Human Geography and Spatial Planning
assess how sustainable certain spatial development practices are. In the course on sustainable ci-
   ties, students…
       a.       … enhance skills to design and communicate sustainable development and strategies to
                govern towards sustainable planned cities;
       b.       … learn to critically reflect upon sustainable planning literature and sustainable plan-
                ning practices, both oral and in written text.
4. Students understand the governance and management of cities.
   Students will learn in the course on urban governance how planning and governance processes in
   the urban context work. Therefore, different theoretical perspectives on governance in spatial
   planning are discussed and the role of governance is analyzed in case studies of (inter-)national
   complex spatial projects. Students learn to…
       a.       … critically reflect upon current dilemma’s and conflicts in scientific and societal de-
                bates related to the differentiated and complex nature of governance networks in
                spatial planning;
       b.       … enhance skills to collectively design and communicate spatial project and process
                management strategies for addressing complex spatial challenges in planning practice.
Finally, students will proof their ability to apply the academic knowledge and skills acquired during the
master study to specific spatial planning problems in an independent and self-responsible way.

The employment market
The masters prepares for a job as an independent and internationally recognized spatial planner in the
sphere of policy, project and process management, or research in the Netherlands or abroad on the
local and up to the European levels. With a wide field of view and an eye for various interests, planners
are widely employed in a range of organizations such as municipal, state or national government,
research and consultancy institutions, profit and non-profit institutions, social and civil organizations,
international organizations, but also as PhD student at a university.

Structure of the Master Spatial Planning
First Semester
The first semester will be divided in to two blocks in which four courses will be offered. The first block
encompasses a course on planning theory and course on advanced methods and techniques. This will
deepen students’ academic skills and knowledge in spatial planning. The theoretical course will thereby
look beyond traditional planning theory, incorporating an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to
planning. Parallel, students will further develop skills in quantitative and qualitative research methods.
Both courses together form an essential training for the individual research in the master thesis.
The second block of the first semester is dedicated to the content and processes in spatial planning: In
the course Smart Urban Governance students will explore governance and policy research and connect
and train it in practical exercises in cooperation with practice partners; in Planning for Sustainable
Cities, different aspects of sustainability as a key principle of spatial planning are addressed in lectures.
Different guest speakers will discuss the issues from different angels in interactive classrooms. In
particular in the second block, the bridge between spatial planning as an academic discipline and
spatial planning practice is emphasized.
During all seminars, students will work in small study groups on their individual specialization, always
embracing interdisciplinary research which is both – academically innovative and societal relevant.

Second Semester
The second semester is dedicated to the individual research projects of students, ultimately leading to
the master thesis. There are few input lectures in this period, instead students are individually su-
pervised by experienced and specialized teachers, supporting them to develop and study their specific
subject and individual focus within the study programme. The topic of a master thesis is suggested by
the students themselves. It is always on the one side directly related to a societal problem in the field
of spatial planning, on the other side an academic endeavour.

Briefly Course Catalogue master Spatial Planning 2018 – 2019                                              9
Faculty of Geosciences – Department Human Geography and Spatial Planning
Parallel to the master thesis students are encouraged and supported in doing a research internship in
planning practice (i.e. at a municipality, a consultancy, with a ministry, an NGO, etc.). Although an
internship is not obligatory within the study programme, students are recommended to link and
combine the master thesis with an internship. Not only will this provide substantial insight in planning
practice and help with establishing connections for empirical research, but it is also a step towards the
labour market. The supervisors and master coordinator will advise and help on this matter where
possible and appropriate.
