UCL's new MSc Data Science and Public Policy, the first degree to be co-taught by UCL Economics and Political Science, will equip a new generation of policymakers to solve the biggest problems in today's society through data science.


The rapid expansion and increased availability of quantitative data in recent years provides policymakers with both important opportunities and great challenges. The vast size and complexity of digital information has the potential to improve how we understand, design, implement, and evaluate effective public policy. However, translating this wealth of information into useful insight requires a deep understanding of cutting-edge data-science methods, rich technical skills, and detailed knowledge about economic and political processes.


This programme will provide you with intensive training in applied data-science methods, computer programming, statistics, and machine learning, with a focus on applying these tools to questions in public policy. You will also take specialised modules in political science and economics through which you will develop a strong understanding of key issues in public policy formation, development and analysis. The programme features a combination of compulsory modules and options, enabling you to chart your own path.

Where novel thinking is nurtured and encouraged

UCL is a diverse community with the freedom to challenge, to question, and to think differently. Our community pursues academic excellence, breaks boundaries and makes a positive impact on real world problems.

An Academic Powerhouse

UCL is 8th in the world in the “QS World University Rankings 2022.”  There have been 30 Nobel laureates among its former staff and students; a winner in every decade since the Prize started.

World Leading Research University

At the very heart of UCL’s mission is our research. We were rated the top university in the UK for research strength in the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). We offer over 675 postgraduate taught, research and initial teacher education programmes across a wide range of disciplines, and encourage our community to work across traditional subject boundaries. UCL's research-based teaching methodology means that research is integrated into many of our degrees and students have the opportunity to make an original contribution to their field of study. 

London’s Global University

UCL sits at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic cities, meaning you are perfectly placed to take advantage of everything London has to offer. We were the first university in England to welcome women to university education, and the first university in England to welcome students of any religion or social background. UCL has 18,000 students from outside the UK, with over 150 countries represented, providing a truly global perspective.


Your Future

UCL has been ranked among the top 20 universities worldwide for graduate employability in the 2022 QS Graduate Employability Rankings

At UCL we know that students choose to enter graduate study for a myriad of reasons, and we are deeply committed to supporting our student’s aspirations and enhancing their skills and employability. UCL Careers helps students to find their perfect career, develop their professional skills or start their own business through one-to-one guidance and events, as well as a variety of careers information. Recruitment and networking events help students improve their knowledge of a particular industry sector and specific employers. For students interested in starting a business, UCL Innovation and Enterprise gives expert advice and practical support, as well as networking opportunities.

Study Climate Change at UCL 

A UCL education is a climate education. UCL students have the opportunity to delve into climate issues and make an impact through many of UCL's programmes of study. 

Our students bring new thinking on climate action; from designing solutions to UCL's climate challenges through the Living Lab programme to helping us implement the changes as Sustainability Ambassadors  and holding us to account at the UK’s first Student Sustainability Council.

Generation One 

UCL is turning ground-breaking science and ideas into actions to tackle climate change.   

Inspired by the words of former US President, Barack Obama: “We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change, and the last generation who can do something about it.” Generation One offers everyone the chance to understand the science behind the issues facing our planet. UCL is driving debate and solutions, empowering everyone to feel they can contribute, rather than being overwhelmed by the challenge.
