Course content

In architecture, research and practice go hand in hand, with ground-breaking design inspiring great research and vice versa. This three-month programme allows students to develop their own research and/or design to an advanced level, ready to push new boundaries and change normalised modes of working either in academia or industry. Many students on this programme work with their tutors to clarify a PhD proposal.

The UCL Bartlett is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and operate the buildings and urban environments of the future.

Located in London, it is at the heart of the world's largest cluster of creative architects and engineering firms, next to the UK's seat of government and finance and has all the resources of a world city to hand.

Outputs from the programme include group exhibitions, such as \'Constructing Realities\', which was held at Arup's Phase 2 Gallery in central London.
