UCL Qatar




As London's research powerhouse, cutting-edge and innovative cross-disciplinary research is at the core of the UCL mission.  

Key objectives

At UCL Qatar, research of the highest level is one of our key objectives. We aim to contribute to and strengthen Qatar's research capacity, in keeping with Qatar Vision 2030.

To this end, we have developed and implemented research projects across the Arab and Islamic World, with the assistance of external funding sources such as the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), and through collaborations with regional and international partners. Our leading projects are based in Qatar, Sudan and Egypt.

Our research and subsequent findings informs our teaching and provides opportunities for our students to gain practical exposure within archaeology and cultural heritage, through site excavations, lab analysis and library resources.
