The Bartlett


Outreach at The Bartlett

The Bartlett Outreach Team aim to encourage prospective learners to consider higher education at The Bartlett, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment

We want to boost and widen higher education access for underrepresented groups. In order to do this we currently work with numerous organisations, schools, communities and students of all ages (Pre and Post-16).

Our goal is not only to increase diversity but to improve inclusivity and to raise awareness for the Bartlett. 

Schools we work with 

In order to widen access to The Bartlett for underrepresented groups, we prioritise working with schools that meet two or more of our criteria: 

  • High Widening Participation intake (at pre and/or post 16) 
  • Low performing schools 
  • Postcode data showing levels of deprivation and progression to higher education 
  • Non selective state schools 
  • High achieving students with a keen interest in creative subjects (Design technology, Art or any that has expressed to teachers that they are interested in architecture, planning or construction)

Visits to your school 

Would you prefer for The Bartlett to come to you?  

For students in Year 6 - 9, one of our fantastic student ambassadors can visit your school to talk to your students about what the built environment is and get them thinking about the spaces around them.  

For older students one of our academics can visit to give your students a more detailed understanding of what it is like to study the built environment at university, and answer their questions about applying, portfolios, and careers in this area.  

Please also invite us to your HE fairs and career days  and we will always do our very best to attend.
