The Inter-disciplinary Urban Design MRes from University College London (UCL) is a faculty-wide one-year research degree designed to allow students to tailor their own learning 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.

Learning outcomes

This Inter-disciplinary Urban Design programme from University College London (UCL) provides an interdisciplinary space in which students can examine the challenges of urban design from comparative disciplinary perspectives; students are exposed to the latest cutting-edge urban design research and teaching at the UCL Bartlett and are offered the opportunity to conduct a substantial piece of individual urban design research, receiving training in methodologies appropriate to the conduct of urban design and urban scale research.


The programme opens up a range of future opportunities for participants along two primary paths:

It provides an opportunity for students seeking to further their professional careers, to specialise in urban design and, within that broad arena, to engage deeply with a particular research agenda of direct relevance to their future professional practice

For students seeking a research or academic career, the MRes provides the ideal training for a PhD and eventually an academic or other research position.
