MSc in Transport, Health & Policy

The MSc in Transport, Health & Policy aims to create leaders who can implement and assess policy across the essential services of transport and health.


The MSc in Transport, Health and Policy deliberately breaks from a technical topic-per-module approach, instead focussing on stages within policy evaluation and implementation. This shift of focus enables the complexity of the interactions between transport and health to be explored on a project by project basis. Students will work alongside UCL academics and teaching staff on innovative solutions which bridge the boundaries between transport and health.

Why should I study this degree at UCL?

UCL has a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research, and is situated within the heart of one of the world's greatest cities. The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering is an exciting environment in which to explore this new, multi-disciplinary and constantly evolving science. The programme will be supported by a range of academics across UCL from those who specialise in  the analysis of large data sets related to health and transport to those who are leading research on behavioural change. The Department has collaborative links with the Department for Transport, Public Health England and organisations such as TfL, the CIHT and community persons groups who will deliver lectures and support seminars.

Degree Structure

The programme is offered full time (1 year) and part time (2 years). A postgraduate diploma (120 credits) is also offered if the research module is omitted. All modules are also available as Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses.
