Why study Planning at UCL?

Our modules place considerable emphasis on project work, drawing extensively from the wealth of urban issues in London and the challenges it confronts as a world city, and from the expertise of its internationally renowned staff and extensive research portfolio.

Our modules are designed to equip you with relevant theories, methodologies, skills and techniques taken from the social science and design disciplines, enabling you to develop a capacity for creative thinking. The school's strong research track record and links to professional practice feed into our teaching.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching is conducted through a variety of methods, including lectures, tutorials and project work. Assessment is mainly by essays, project work, coursework and presentations. Some modules include end-of-year examinations, although alternative assessment is available for those studying here in the Fall Term only.
