It is predicted that by 2030, 60% of the population – 5 billion people – will be city dwellers. Cities represent a great opportunity for both economic growth and improved quality of life, but this is only possible with wise and well-considered development.

UNSW Built Environment has established a leading academic interdisciplinary program to lead comprehensive research and education initiatives to tackle the grand challenges of the 21st century cities such as rapid urbanisation, heat island impacts and urban renewal.

Thanks to the generous donation by Dr Vincent Lo, UNSW graduate and donor, UNSW Built Environment invites aspiring Higher Degree Research students to apply for PhD scholarships worth AUD $100,000 to conduct research into Urban Regeneration and Renewal in the Asia Pacific region. Please go to Vincent Lo PhD Scholarships for more information.
