Description

Approach architecture and urban design through the prism of people and space with Space Syntax at The Bartlett School of Architecture. This research-focused Master’s offers students the opportunity to develop their own research in the service of building a better built environment for society.

About this degree

Alongside initial training in space syntax research, students will be able to specialise in one of several streams: buildings and organisations; urban, suburban, planned and unplanned settlements; spatial modelling and evidence-based architectural and urban design. If desired, students will be able to develop a research project relevant to the research interests of their company or practice.

Programme Funding

UCL offers a range of financial awards aimed at assisting both prospective and current students with their studies.

Student Destinations

Some graduates of the programme will enter the specialism for the first time. Others will return to their workplace with fresh focus or may specialise in the burgeoning spheres of expertise that this research field has recently developed.

First destinations of recent graduates of this programme include roles with leading architecture and design practices, as well as various academic or research positions at prestigious international universities or research centres.

Employability

This programme enhances students’ abilities in the fields of evidence-based architectural and urban design, strategic planning and design, urban regeneration, architectural and urban morphology, spatial and network analysis, future and smart cities, and transport planning. Graduates can be involved in both professional and academic activities. For those who go into practice, the programme is cutting-edge in evidence-informed and research-based design; graduates who choose an academic path will have the advanced knowledge and skills required for high-level academic posts. In reality, many graduates will be selected for jobs that bridge the two areas.
