MSc Social Policy and Social Research (With Systematic Reviews)

This MSc combines advanced training in systematic reviews with a theoretical understanding of contemporary social problems, policy intervention, and policymaking processes across different sectors and countries. It stands alone as an MSc but can also prepare students for doctoral research. Students study methods for systematic reviews of both qualitative and quantitative data, and a full range of research designs. The MSc will enable you to:

  • plan and appraise systematic reviews of research in any policy area;
  • have a critical appreciation of the full diversity of review approaches and types of research use; and
  • ensure public, practitioner, policymaker perspectives are considered in research and policy. 

Students learn from an interdisciplinary team of research-active tutors based at UCL’s EPPI Centre, all with specialist expertise across a range of policy areas. The MSc can be taken on campus or through distance learning, full-time (1 year), part time (2 years) or flexible (between 2 and 5 years). International students on a Student visa must study full-time and on campus.
