Outreach at The Bartlett
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.
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)

This scholarship aims to enable students from backgrounds under-represented in The Bartlett, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment to pursue their studies at The Bartlett. The value includes full tuition fees plus an annual allowance to cover living and study expenses, for the normal duration of the programme at UCL. All Promise scholars will also receive on-going academic and career support during their study.
The Bartlett Outreach Team wouldn't be able to carry out all these activities without our amazing outreach ambassadors. Our ambassadors assist on school visits, support Bartlett staff and share their experiences as a student at The Bartlett with our audience. Our Student Ambassadors work with the Outreach team by supporting the Widening Participation projects and events that provide opportunities for students from underrepresented backgrounds to gain further insight into the Bartlett and higher education and provide information and motivation to school/college students.
We are particularly interested in hearing from undergraduate students, but welcome applications from all Bartlett students.
