The Bartlett Real Estate Institute’s (BREI) Healthcare Facilities MSc provides an integrated and interdisciplinary programme related to healthcare facilities in the widest sense. You will have the opportunity to transform the wider healthcare community’s view of the role, design and operation of built forms that support health activities.

The Healthcare Facilities programme offered by University College London (UCL)  will cover all aspects of the process of creating, renewing or managing healthcare facilities. We will guide you through your own personalised learning journey, tailored to your background and interests as much as possible.

This transformative Master's degree will enhance the quality of your decision-making around healthcare facilities. We will establish a common language, communication channels, interdisciplinary working patterns and understanding of healthcare policies, services, systems and cultural paradigms across the globe.

Your learning journey will be personalised and specific to your own interests. Each module will have a ‘live’ problem set in collaboration with external organisations that will enable you to learn within a real-world context.
