The Bartlett


International Engagement

International partnerships in education, research and public engagement are central to our work at The Bartlett and our contributions to global challenges.

The Bartlett is an internationally facing faculty by design. That’s because addressing global challenges requires bringing together multiple knowledges and experiences. Our research, teaching and public engagement is therefore premised on ‘glocal’ (simultaneously local and international), transdisciplinary collaborations with partners from academia, the private and public sectors, as well as civil society. 

As part of UCL, London's global university, we are committed to continuously interrogate and advance the principles and practices that underpin our partnerships with colleagues, students and collaborators across the world, towards caring relationships with equivalence.
