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