Descripton & Requirements
Rural and Urban Planning provides a broad based education in urban planning, especially as it is practiced in the Zimbabwe. A wide range of state laws and mandates have created a planning environment which is distinct from its practice in much of the rest of Zimbabwe. The degree’s curriculum is thoroughly grounded in the academic and applied dimensions of the profession. Classroom experience emphasizes key theoretical aspects of urban planning, while practical exercises and field experiences address how planning problems are addressed at the local and regional level. The Department offers a four year Full-Time Bachelor’s Degree in Rural and Urban Planning (RUP) and also Real Estate Management (REM).

The entry requirements for Bachelors’ Degree in RUP are as follows: at least five Level passes including English Language and Mathematics (at least a B Pass); at least two A ‘Level passes including Geography and any one from the following subjects, Mathematics, Economics, Accounts, Management of Business, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Sociology.  For REM, a prospective candidate must have at least five Level passes including Geography, English Language and Mathematics (at least a B Pass).

The degree program is cohort driven with new class cohorts beginning each year in the fall semester. The two degree Programmes offered by the Department of RUP are specifically designed to serve the needs of working students and professionals.  Some classes are scheduled for evenings and Saturdays.
