Course content

The Inter-disciplinary Urban Design MRes is a faculty-wide one-year research degree designed to allow students to tailor their own learning and research to their background and future aspirations. Students can construct their study in an inter-disciplinary manner, enabling them to explore urban design as a critical arena for advanced research and practice.

The UCL Bartlett brings together dozens of urban design focused research and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and managed the urban environments of the future.

This degree allows the student to tap into both taught and research learning and training of their choice, accross the various Schools of The Bartlett, via a bespoke programme diet.

The MRes IUD is a unique and in-depth research programme allowing the student to experience the academic research world in a short period of time. It trains the student professionally as well as academically, offering insights of what the experience of doing a PhD may be like, and that of being an academic researcher.

This MRes is a faculty-wide programme, and students are able to access perhaps the largest global concentration of urban design related researchers and professional expertise.

The programme has a simple and highly flexible structure, designed to allow students to tailor their learning both to their own background, and how they wish to specialise in the future.
