The Bartlett School of Environment Energy and Resources: London

Lead your field from the heart of London, apply to a Postgraduate programme at The Bartlett School of Environment Energy and Resources…

The UCL Energy Institute

Delivers world-leading teaching, research and policy support in the fields of buildings, energy systems, people and energy, policy, smart energy and transport.

The UCL Institute of Environmental Design and Engineering

Pursues a deeper understanding of the part played by choices relating to buildings and the urban environment in tackling some of the greatest challenges facing mankind, in areas such as health, human well-being, productivity, energy use and climate change.

The UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage

Delivers sustainable solutions to real world problems concerning cultural heritage, working with external partners on ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary research and innovative teaching for future heritage leaders.

The UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources 

Generates knowledge in the globally sustainable use of natural resources and trains the future leaders of this field. Our definition of resources is broad, and our research approach is equally inclusive, bringing together experts from across UCL.

Our postgraduate programmes include:

MSc Environmental Design & Engineering

Putting fresh minds at the forefront of environmental building design the MSc EDE has produced a stream of high-achieving graduates, sought after by the biggest names in building design and the construction industry. We attract students from across the globe eager to find positions here in London or to take relevant, cutting-edge thinking about sustainable building design, energy use and building-related health issues back to their own part of the world.

“The interdisciplinary nature of the course helped me to work better within multidisciplinary teams, think across boundaries, and more importantly communicate effectively. It helped me to think out of the box and challenge the ‘not so good practices’ traditionally accepted by the industry.”

Marjan Gholamalipour,
Senior Project Manager, Arup

MSc Light & Lighting

Lighting can bring out the best in buildings; but it can also help us to find our way, to work, to relax, to feel safe and to see familiar places, literally, in a fresh light. This course, Europe’s longest-running and most respected graduate lighting course, is all about the human experience of the built environment, inside and out. Since 1987, we’ve done what no other lighting course has: bring together the technical and creative sides of lighting design.

“The course changed me completely and opened my eyes up to the many different facets of lighting design. It covered the technology and lighting calculation side of things that I knew about, but also explored how the eye-brain works, daylighting design and architectural lighting, and how we are affected by light both physically and culturally.”

Lighting Expert for the Municipality of Abu Dhabi

MSc Sustainable Heritage

This innovative course is intended to develop a new generation of heritage leaders, bringing together all aspects of cultural heritage – historic buildings, collections, sites and landscapes and best practice in heritage management.

“Completing the Masters course in Sustainable Heritage was one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have ever undertaken. Lessons were dynamic: the discussions held between an international mix of students and leading heritage specialists was really engaging and thought-provoking and provided a series of unique perspectives to consider.”

Isabel Assaly
MSc Sustainable Heritage Alumni

MRes Science & Engineering in Arts, Heritage & Archaeology

A pioneering course that builds on UCL’s former MRes Heritage Science, adopting a modular structure and leading-edge teaching techniques by academics from UCL, the University of Oxford and the University of Brighton.


MSc Sustainable Resources



This new degree launching in 2016/17 aims to deliver a sustainability perspective on the international supply and demand of natural resources, as well as the more traditional focus on the environment, socio-economic development and equity issues, and train the future leaders in the field. 

MSc Economics & Policy of Energy &  the Environment

Students will reach a deep understanding of different economic and policy approaches to the resource and environmental problems facing the global community and nation states, especially in respect to energy and climate change.

MRes Energy Demand Studies

MRes EDS students develop an exciting range of skills and knowledge, exploring the interplay of physics, engineering, economics and behaviour. MRes students work in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment, with greater freedom to explore and develop interests than is normally possible with an MSc. The first-class training prepares students to hit the ground running as the energy pioneers of tomorrow.

“I love doing research and I am passionate about reducing the energy consumption of the built environment. This Master's programme was exactly what I was looking for: multi-disciplinary research in a multicultural environment. To my mind UCL Energy Institute is one of the world-leading institutions in energy-related research. I couldn't ask for any better. "

Virginia Gori
MRes Energy Demands Studies MRes (2012/2013)

Apply to UCL Postgraduate Programmes

"UCL has given me the freedom and space to think through difficult problems that I thought were important and yet under-studied internationally, with the potential to contribute to both the industry and policymaker led solutions to those problems."

Dr Tristan Smith
Lecturer in Energy and Transport UCL Energy Institute
