Earlier this month, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment launched The Bartlett Promise – a long-term project offering scholarships worth a total of £1.2 million per year to students from underrepresented backgrounds.

The Promise scholarships will cover students’ fees, living and study costs for the duration of their degree. For the Promise’s first year, scholarships are open to students from the UK and EU countries applying to undergraduate degrees at three Schools in The Bartlett, including the School of Construction and Project Management. 

BSc Project Management for Construction at The Bartlett

Our undergraduate degree, BSc Project Management for Construction, is management-based, focusing on the project management of capital projects and the pioneering sustainable initiatives influencing the future of construction.

This degree is also available as a four-year sandwich course, with a year completed on placement in industry. The placement year introduces you to the real-life experience of working in the construction sector alongside industry professionals.
