The Bartlett



Our students are why The Bartlett exists, and they make it what it is.

PhD Student Theses

We have 2,100 undergraduate and postgraduate students from more than 60 countries, all chosen for their talent and future potential, regardless of their social or national origin. It’s this mix of people and backgrounds that gives The Bartlett its welcoming, inclusive and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It’s also one of the reasons why this place sparks so many fresh ideas.

Our students bring their imagination, resourcefulness and commitment, helping to maintain a fierce reputation for hard work. We’re proud of them – proud of what they’re achieving now and what they’ll achieve in their careers after they’ve left.

        Welcome to London


        The Bartlett is based in the heart of London (as well as at Here East, our new campus in East London), and there's no better place for you to learn about the built environment. Don't miss out on any of the exciting opportunities that London has to offer...


        To state the obvious, London is a big city, and it isn't always easy to find your way around. Try downloading the Citymapper app on your phone to help you get from A to B as quickly (and cheaply) as possible.

        Budget planner

        You've probably already realised that London is an expensive city: with so much to see, eat, and do, it's not always easy to keep a handle on your budget. Using a budget-planner like Student Calculator can help make managing your money much easier.

        18+ Student Oyster Card

        An easy way to save some money is to take advantage of Transport for London's student Oyster card discount.

        16–25 Railcard

        London is a great city from which to explore the rest of the UK. The 16–25 Railcard gets you 1/3 off your rail fares. Start packing your bags!

        NUS Extra Card

        Get an NUS Extra Card through UCLU for only £12 and you'll have discounts on countless brands across the UK!


        Much like the NUS Extra Card, StudentBeans helps you find discounts in shops, restaurants and more. It's worth having a look before your next online shopping spree or takeaway order!

        TimeOut London

        TimeOut is a comprehensive guide for restaurants, bars, shows, free events and more around London. You need never be bored again.
