Research course

Sustainable Heritage

UCL - University College London · Bartlett School of Architecture

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. A Master’s degree is highly desirable, though not essential, and in exceptional cases candidates without Master’s degrees may be admitted, where they have other suitable research experience. We expect any successful application to include a sufficiently strong and convincing proposal, and those holding a Master’s degree are typically well prepared to provide one. Applicants who have a lower second-class Honours Bachelor's degree (2:2) must possess a relevant Master’s degree.

Course content

Research is fundamental to the work of the Institute of Sustainable Heritage. ISH has pioneered postgraduate teaching in the area and successfully raised the profile of sustainable heritage with industry, policy-makers and the scientific community. Most ISH research spans subjects in the arts and humanities and the hard sciences, which means we draw on expertise from across disciplines, not just within ISH but also from the UCL Cultural Heritage Network, a community of experts in departments across UCL with an interest in cultural heritage work. Our research can be theoretical, field or laboratory-based, but it is always cross-disciplinary. Please visit our research pages for further information.
