Are you ready to become a future urbanist?

Welcome to the Urban Laboratory at University College London, ranked #1 the world for Built Environment studies (QS World University Subject Ranking 2023).

Our Global Urbanism MASc is the first urban master’s degree to radically cut across arts, humanities, social sciences and technology studies, so you can specialise in urbanism as a challenge-driven and practice-oriented transdisciplinary field.

We’re located at the cutting-edge new UCL East campus in London, rated the world’s best student city (QS Best Student Cities 2024).

Our graduates are suited to a wide range of urban and built environment careers in urban change and design, community participation, inclusive urban development and governance.
