Course summary

Course Summary

This multi-disciplinary course analyses the impact of capitalist neoliberalism on development. It examines neoliberal policies over the last 30 years and their effects on urban layout, property markets, architectural form and social justice. Although sited within the architecture department we welcome applicants from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines.

What You'll Learn

The MRes in Architecture course is aimed at a range of professionals and students from around the world who are engaged in the built environment - from architects and planners to developers and activists. It is geared towards working professionals but is also a means for practitioners seeking new employment pathways, or re-entry to the job market, to improve their skills base in critical thinking and writing, both of which are crucial to successful practice.

Your Future Career

This course is designed to gives the opportunity to enhance your current thinking, writing and communication skills to a level suitable to commence doctoral study for a PhD. The precision this requires is an asset in the professional marketplace, and by focussing the themes of urban regeneration and the political mechanisms of the city, the course delivers invaluable insights into urban practice. Through active participation in the course, you will acquire critical insights and practical experiences of urban regeneration in its widest sense. As part of UEL's Place Production Research Group, we aim to be Britain's leading centre for critical thinking about cities. Our programme of research for the coming academic year includes a one day conference on the housing crisis, co hosted with Birkbeck and the academic journal City.
