Cultural Heritage (UCL Qatar)


UCL, in partnership with Qatar Foundation and Qatar Museums Authority, has created UCL Qatar, a world-leading department for the study of cultural heritage located in the heart of the Arab world. Since opening its doors in 2012, UCL Qatar has welcomed students from over 25 countries onto its graduate degree programmes in Museum Studies, Archaeology and Conservation. Each programme offers a significant emphasis on the heritage of the Gulf region. Graduates are equipped to be at the forefront of their professions through a combination of theoretical and practical training, including extended placements at museums and heritage sites across the region.
