In a fast-changing world, the preservation and protection of our cultural heritage matters more than ever before. The UCL ISH MSc Sustainable Heritage is training a new generation of leaders and managers equipped to safeguard our heritage and inspire innovative uses of it.

The UCL ISH MSc Sustainable Heritage course introduces students to the best and latest conservation policies, projects, methodologies and practices in the context of historic buildings, sites, landscapes and collections.
