The Urban History and Culture programme is taught by experts from the University of London Institute in Paris, and three Schools in the Faculty of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. Students benefit from small-group seminars, where they will develop both empirical understanding of, and methodological approaches to what distinguishes and what connects these two capitals in order to understand the challenges both cities face today.
From historical perspectives and through comparative experience, students will explore the development of urban topography and planning through site visits and analysis.
All Queen Mary degree programmes offered at ULIP are taught courses, delivered by tutors from Queen Mary University of London.
Students will be expected to engage in self-directed study with the aid of the Virtual Learning Environment, and can expect to choose between compulsory and elective modules, with a dissertation as the main method of assessment.
ULIP is a research-driven institution, and offers supervision to students wishing to undertake a MPhil or PhD in one of the university’s many areas of expertise. Students can study either full or part-time and complete a degree in 3-6 years, which allows a certain amount of flexibility, and the opportunity to organise their postgraduate studies around existing work or personal commitments.
Work schedules for postgraduate thesis applications will need to be discussed directly with the university before applying, to ensure that the research interests align with the institution’s own investigations.
ULIP currently offers no distance learning courses, but it is possible to study a University of London degree remotely, from anywhere in the world with University of London Worldwide. The university’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) has been developed to deliver its world-leading course content in a totally online platform, with feedback and guidance from tutors available in a flexible and time-managed format. ULIP’s distance learning students can also connect with their peers though the VLE, to share ideas and to feel part of the university community.
