Trying to decide between UCL MSc in Environment and Development and UCL MSc in Environment and Sustainable Development. The UCL degree is inside the Bartlett Arch School and the LSE degree is part of DESTIN and geography....
Anyone have an opinion about the strength of these programs?
What about LSE Regional and Urban Planning Studies? What is the difference in this as opposed to a program at UCL inside the Development Planning Unit for example?
I think people saying LSE straight away haven't really seen the difference between the programmes.
LSE is much more about structural/systemic issues of development and environment and so much more focused on economic, political and geographical issues (as you would expect from the LSE)
UCL is much more based on urban planning and architecture. The Bartlett school is also very famous in its field and more so than LSE if your looking at that side of things.
So the decision is not really LSE vs UCL but rather do you prefer the economic/political side of development or the urban planning side.
Good luck with your decision
what did you choose eventually?
