The School strives to be a centre of excellence in research, teaching and policy and practice for urban and regional planning.

Within the environmental sphere, research projects are underway on agricultural sustainability and rural development; sustainable communities; environmental valuation and governance including Ecological Footprinting, and renewable energy, planning and multi-level governance. The New Masters course will be connected with the existing 90ECS MSc in Sustainability, Planning and Environmental Policy.

As a city, Cardiff is lively, elegant, confident, and cosmopolitan, offering everything from the excitement of a vibrant city life to the peace and tranquillity of the nearby coast and countryside. A city with both heritage and ambition Cardiff has a distinctive character, a good quality of life, and a growing national and international reputation. It is presently host to numerous large and high profile events, including Britain's largest free summer festival. As the capital city of Wales it is home to many national institutions including the National Museum of Wales and the much-admired Millennium Stadium.
