The MSc/Dip International Real Estate and Planning from the University College London (UCL) focuses on the relationship between the property development process and the planning systems of Europe and beyond.


The programme from the University College London (UCL) consists of lectures and seminars, project work and a dissertation. It aims to give you an understanding of the range of variation across national boundaries, and theoretical and practical knowledge that can be applied internationally.

The MSc/PGDip explores the systems through which urban planning and property development operate:

  • market mechanisms
  • ownership frameworks
  • taxation and subsidy
  • land use
  • policy planning

It also considers market mechanisms from the perspective of investors, developers and occupiers of buildings, and the relationship between markets and policy at various geographical levels.


Graduates of the programme who were not already employed have taken jobs in private and public organisations in the field of real estate and planning in the UK and abroad.


Graduates of the International Real Estate and Planning MSc have been very successful in gaining subsequent employment, and at present there is a growing demand for our Master's graduates from a wide range of both public and private employers. This programme prepares students both theoretically and practically to practise across international boundaries in the fields of urban policy, real estate market analysis and property development. 

Students will develop the necessary skills, knowledge and aptitudes to become creative, problem-solving professionals and to co-operate and engage creatively with others as both team members and team leaders. Graduates will also be equipped to engage in research, policy and regulatory activities relating to the field.


The Master's programme is fully accredited by both RTPI and RICS
