For the fourth year in a row, The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment has been ranked number two in the world for architecture by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018, second only to Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

The annual rankings are based on academic and employer reputation, as well as research impact, which is assessed using surveys, citation analysis and the impact of published work.

The Bartlett is the highest-ranked institution for architecture in the UK and Europe, and is one of only three UK architecture schools to feature in the top 25.

Delighted by the global recognition for our staff and students, Professor Bob Sheil, Director of The Bartlett School of Architecture, said:

“The Bartlett, UCL is unique in its multidisciplinary and diverse approach to the built environment. We challenge conventional divides between architecture, science, engineering, and the arts with new and innovative research and education, state-of-the-art spaces and exceptional staff.
