Course Summary

The aim of the MSc Healthcare Facilities is to generate an integrated perspective of all those components that constitute systemic, sustainable, and successful healthcare facilities. These components will also include: a strong emphasis on the value of real estate and place-making; an understanding of all elements necessary to enable significant environments for healthcare; an holistic perspective on Healthcare Facilities as a social provision. You will gain valuable insight and expertise on how the architectural, engineering, technological, economic, social and policy dimensions come together in successful healthcare facility planning, design, delivery and management. You will develop multidisciplinary skillsets, critical thinking and a deeper understanding of how the healthcare environment is planned, designed, and managed. The MSc will prepare you for an important and rewarding career in the sectors related to healthcare facilities, such as healthcare planning, architecture, construction, or in the capital / estates and facilities departments of healthcare services.

The MSc Healthcare Facilities is the only multidisciplinary programme of its type available in the UK. This MSc course will provide you with the opportunity to visit healthcare facilities, learn from experts, and interact alongside other experienced students to gain insights into the planning, designing, delivery and managing healthcare facilities. You will build a unique network as you learn amongst your international peers in London’s Global University.
