Interested in applying for a course? Here's what you need to know:
We welcome students from across the globe to study and research at The Bartlett School of Architecture. If you'd like to apply, ensure you've read through our programme pages, and clicked through to the UCL online prospectus pages where you'll find up-to-date entry requirements and application deadlines. You might also want to think about joining us for an Open Day.
After completing your research, you'll need to follow one of the following processes depending on whether or not you're an international student and the level of the programme you're applying to study.
Applications for our undergraduate programmes are made through UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service. Please read the UCL guidelines for applicants.
Information about undergraduate fees can be found on the UCL Undergraduate Fees and Finance page.
How to apply
1. Decide which undergraduate programme you would like to study
2. Make sure you understand the entry requirements that are listed on the UCL online prospectus page for your programme
3. Complete your UCAS application before the deadline in January
Places on our programmes are in high demand, so make sure you get your UCAS application in on time. The deadline for 2019 entry is 15th January 2019.
4. Get ready to share your work with us
If you meet the UCAS deadline and are judged to meet the entry requirements, our admissions team will invite you to share your work with us in one of the following two ways:
- For Architecture BSc you’ll be invited to submit an assessment task, responding to a brief. The brief for this task changes every year, and we’re looking for a quick, creative and spontaneous response.
- For Architectural & Interdisciplinary Studies BSc and Engineering & Architectural Design MEng, you’ll be invited to upload a small portfolio of up to ten images of your creative work to the UCL Applicant Portal page.
5. Your submission will be assessed and if you're successful you will be invited for an interview
Interviews at The Bartlett are our opportunity to get to know you, your work and why you want to study with us, but also your chance to get know the school. You’ll have a chance to tour our studios, meet current students and discuss the programme with tutors.
If you’re invited for interview, you’ll be asked to provide a short personal statement which summarises why you’d like to study architecture with us. You will also be asked to prepare your portfolio of creative and original work.
6. Await a decision
Decisions will be made as soon as possible after your interview, however at certain points in the year the decision may take longer due to the high volume of applications we receive.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Chris Cutbush, Undergraduate Programmes Manager for The Bartlett
