This first Opening Research Seminar will be the first event of six Public Research Seminars. For prospective students wishing to learn more about and/or study on the Interdisciplinary Urban Design MRes, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions about applying for the course to Programme Director Dr Filipa Wunderlich and alumni of the course.

The Interdisciplinary Urban Design MRes Book/Research Catalogue, Exhibition and Research Seminars Series are part of a wider UCL ChangeMakers funded project, entitled: MRes InterConnect: Bridging Interdisciplinary Communities and Frontline Research.
