We also remain #1 in the UK for Architecture and the Built Environment for the ninth year running. 

The Bartlett is the UK’s largest and most multidisciplinary hub for education and research in the built environment field, with a unique breadth and excellence recognised in our research.  

Through our research, education, and the diverse community of students and scholars that we bring together from around the world, we are uniquely positioned to tackle some of the most crucial issues facing society and our planet, including the climate crisis and global inequalities. Together, we continue to shape our field and lead the change that is needed to build a better world for everyone.

The Bartlett’s position as #1 in this year’s Architecture and Built Environment subject ranking is a testament to the depth and breadth of expertise in The Bartlett community and the importance we place on mobilising our creativity and knowledge to build a better future. I want to congratulate our students, researchers, educators and professional staff for this recognition of their inspiring and impactful work.
