Bartlett Institute launches ‘unique’ Healthcare Facilities MSc

UCL’s Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI) in London is launching a ‘unique’ MSc programme in Healthcare Facilities that will explore how the physical environment affects healthcare. The Healthcare Facilities MSc, reportedly the UK’s first of its kind, will consider the challenges facing healthcare real estate provision and operation, and provide healthcare and built environment professionals with the knowledge to plan, design, and manage facilities. Those running the course say it will help participants prepare for a rewarding career in sectors such as healthcare planning, architecture, or construction, or in the capital/estates and facilities departments of healthcare services.

Course director, Dr Evangelia Chrysikou, said the programme would influence the future of healthcare design. She explained: “It provides students with practical skills that are highly sought after by employers in the real estate, engineering, architecture, healthcare architecture, medical planning, healthcare facilities management, and construction fields. Participants will gain an integrated perspective of all the components that constitute systemic, sustainable, and successful healthcare facilities.”

The programme will be based at the Bartlett Real Estate Institute’s innovative new teaching and research space at Here East on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Participants will have access to expert invited speakers from the built environment professions – including architecture, planning, interior design, project management, facility and estate management, project and real estate management, and education experts.

Enrolment for the MSc Healthcare Facilities is open now. For more information visit

The Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI), part of UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment, is ‘a new global institute that is re-thinking the traditional view of real estate’. It offers MSc programmes and short courses, and undertakes research that evaluates real estate within its wider societal, economic, and environmental context.
