Application process

This section describes the process of applying for an undergraduate programme at The Bartlett School of Architecture. 

1. Decide which programme you would like to study

Explore full details of current modules, units and research clusters on this website for your programme of interest. You can also join us for an Open Day (check our Events page for all of our upcoming Open Days) or take a look at our schedule of public events. 

Remember, you can only apply for a maximum of two graduate programmes at The Bartlett School of Architecture. 

2. Check application deadlines

Most postgraduate courses close for applications on 31 March 2022 but Architecture MArch closes for applications on 25 February 2022. We would advise submitting your application as early as possible, as the admissions process can take several months and we make offers on a rolling basis. Our programmes are also over subscribed and competition is high, so the earlier we receive your application, the better. 

3. Make sure you understand the entry requirements and that you’ve already met them or are likely to

Entry requirements are different for each of our programmes. You can find the full details on this website, on the page for each course. You may also need to find out which qualifications UCL accepts from other countries and check UCL’s English Language proficiency requirements.

Tier 4 Student Visa Holders must meet the English Language requirements of their offer no later than 24 June 2022, in order to allow sufficient time to obtain a CAS number and visa.

4. Submit your application online

Visit the UCL application page to apply. You’ll need to supply the details of two referees who are able to comment on your suitability for the programme for which you are applying. A transcript of results is also required with a certified translation in English if necessary. 

If the programme you’ve applied to requests a portfolio, you’ll be emailed after you’ve submitted your application. Do not send your design work until requested. If needed, please upload an English Language certificate if you have one; however, this can also be sent at a later stage. 

5. Await a decision

You will be able to track the progress of your application via the UCL Applicant Portal. An email will be sent to you telling you how to log in to the applicant portal page once you have submitted your form.
