Required Qualifications

Most space planners will have a degree in Design, Architecture or a similar discipline. Bearing in mind space planners are often more focused on function than appearance, an Arts degree will not always be suitable.

Those interested in this career path should try and become involved with a space planning company as soon as possible. A lot of companies offer work experience and there may be opportunities to help out in other offices. Using the software expected of planners as much as possible is also extremely handy.

Training beyond degree level usually happens in the form of a Master’s, followed by examinations.
