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.

Why we do Outreach

We want to widen higher education access for underrepresented groups. To do this, we 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

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)
