Course content

This programme offers a unique focus on the relationship between real estate, the property development process and the planning systems of Europe and beyond. It explores the systems through which urban development operates and considers market mechanisms from the standpoint of investors, developers and occupiers of buildings, and the relationship of markets and policy at various geographical levels.

The Bartlett School of Planning has a strong history of teaching and research at all levels. The school has been at the forefront of planning research and teaching for over 100 years and is one of the foremost planning schools in the United Kingdom, with an international reputation.

Students will be engaged with practitioners, alumni and academic guests through seminars, site visits and workshops in the UK and overseas. Graduates of the programme will join both the UCL alumni network and the International Real Estate and Planning MSc network.

This MSc programme is fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). It is also accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), either with the requisite module selections or where it is taken as a specialist year following an accredited three-year planning degree.
