Yongping Zhang (China)

"The PLANET  is a very attractive program to me.  Before coming to study here, I already had a mixed background of GIS and human geography in China, and my interests are mainly on land use planning and spatial analysis. The PLANET perhaps is totally different with my previous knowledge, which more emphasize the understanding of spatial planning from institutional perspectives and at the European level. Comparing the fact urban planning is more related to architecture and design in China, it's more like a political science here. Therefore, it's very helpful to understand comprehensively cities and planning. In addition, I can study at two countries, both of which own a high-quality education. Studying, travelling, and experiencing at different places are also perfect ways to learn about cities."
