Why UCL?

Being a student at UCL is about so much more than just acquiring knowledge. In the heart of London, UCL gives you the ability to access a wide range of culture, entertainment and academic resources. Besides, UCL's campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (UCL East) opened recently offering exciting new degrees and the scale and space needed to tackle the biggest challenges facing the planet.

Studying here gives you the opportunity to realise your potential as an individual, and the skills and tools to thrive in whatever you choose to do. It allows you to participate in  research and real-world projects that impact the society today. Our courses will transform you from a student into a professional scientist or engineer.

There are currently five MSc programmes (routes) at the Institute for Materials Discovery, including the ones at the UCL East campus, focusing on Material Science and Technology, Energy Storage, Sustainability, Data-Driven innovation and Materials Innovation and Enterprise. In addition, we offer exciting PhD opportunities in conjunction with the state-of-the-art facilities at the IMD laboratories.
