Why study Architecture at UCL?

British architectural education began at UCL in 1841, and since then the Bartlett School of Architecture has been at the forefront of the international architectural debate. Situated in the heart of London, the school is able to draw on the capital's countless experts and facilities in the field.

What you will gain from study at UCL

You will join a community which is inextricably involved in the production of new buildings, designs, books and all manner of architectural outputs. This is a school where people constantly design, invent, explore, write, draw, teach, speculate, theorise, film, map, critique, analyse and imagine.

Teaching and assessment

Most of the design teaching is on a one-to-one tutorial basis with frequent review sessions. Core history, theory and technology modules support the design work and are assessed through a combination of coursework, essays and examination.

Modules in Architecture

Please note that this guide lists a wide range of popular module options, but it is not exhaustive and some modules may have changed or no longer be available. If you have a particular interest or academic requirement you are advised to cross reference the listing in the online Study Abroad Guide with that on the relevant departmental pages, and to contact the department to make sure that an appropriate module is available.

Architecture modules are not available to students registered in other departments at UCL and we are not able to consider applications from candidates wishing to combine Architecture with another subject.
