The Bartlett


Funding and Scholarships

UCL offers a range of financial awards aimed at assisting both prospective and current students with their studies.

You must have received and accepted your offer before the stated deadline to be eligible.

The UCL Student Funding Office can also certify documentation for American and Canadian students for federal loan applications.

For more information visit the UCL Scholarships and funding website or email scholarships@ucl.ac.uk.

Ad hoc programme-specific funding
Individual programmes and sections of The Bartlett sometimes offer advice and/or funding for particular programmes or subject areas. This information will be provided on the page of the relevant programme. If in doubt, please contact the programme director.

The Bartlett Master’s Scholarships scheme

The Bartlett, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment, offers 10 scholarships for MSc, MPlan, MRes, MA and MArch students, each worth £10,000, to be used either as partial fee remittance for study or as a bursary to cover living costs.

The deadline for receipt of all scholarship applications is 16.00 (UK time) on Friday 27 April 2018. All applicants will be informed of the outcome by email in late July 2018.

All postgraduate students, including continuing students, can be considered for this scholarship, regardless of study mode or fee status.

Our goal

The Bartlett, through this award, hopes to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification at UCL. 

Who can apply?

Successful applicants will need to meet two core criteria:

  • Applicants must hold an offer of study to commence study in September 2018 (or be continuing, if following a modular/flexible or part-time course of study)
  • Applicants must be able to pay the remainder of their fees and all living expenses

Eligibility will be means-tested and will take into account total funds available to the applicant.

Please note, scholarship applicants do not necessarily require an offer of admission by the deadline date, but will need to have submitted a complete application for study.

To apply, please complete the Master’s Scholarship Scheme application form (download below) and send it to bartlett.scholarships@ucl.ac.uk
