I have recently completed my BA Hons in Architecture graduating with a first class honours. After coming out of University I was lucky enough to receive a job offer for which I have been at an architects practice in Sussex for around 6 months now.

I have been dealing regularly with planning applications and speaking to planning officers with the projects I am working on. I have developed an interest in planning, and I am thinking about doing a masters in Town Planning. I was wondering if anyone could help me with a few questions I have regarding the course:

I am looking to study the masters at Brighton or Plymouth, both being accredited by the RTPI.

Are there job opportunities out there for graduates with a masters in Town Planning?

How intense is the masters course? What does it involve?

Is having an architecture degree and 6 months experience in an architects practice suitable for the course?

What is the salary like for graduates with a Town Planning masters in the public and private sector?

Is the course and job itself interesting? Many people have been saying it is undersubscribed as the course hasn't been as lively as they expected.

To become a chartered Town Planner, what is the process for this?

Thoughts and experiences would be much appreciated! Thank you!
