The Bartlett


Long Sustained Projects

Our long-term projects are designed to give a robust introduction to pre-16 students and help guide post-16 students who are preparing for life at university.

Walking The City

Applications for our 'Walking The City' summer course, in collaboration with the STORE projects, is now open.

Walking the City is a free 7-week course for year 11 and 12 students that will explore the world of footwear design and navigating the city. Participants will be introduced to how trainers are made, what materials are used, where they are produced, and their history. They will have the opportunity to design and make their very own pair of shoes, designed for the urban explorer, guided by some of the best architects and designers working in London. This course will introduce the students to a wide range of architectural ideas and processes that you can be found on an undergraduate course at The Bartlett School of Architecture.


Priority will be given to applicants in year 11 or 12, attending non-selective UK state school who are on track to meet the minimum entry requirements to study for an undergraduate degree at the Bartlett (who will ideally have achieved or predicted a grade 5 or above in GCSE English and Mathematics). 


Online sessions: Tuesdays and Thursday in July

In-person sessions: 3-4 July

Design Unlimited 

Design Unlimited is an exciting new outreach project for London state schools, with a focus on KS3 students in years 7 – 9. Delivered in collaboration with outreach organisation Matt + Fiona, this project aims to introduce your students to the potential of the built environment and creative industries. 

The programme will take students on a journey through a real-life design and build process. Through a series of workshops, they will develop the brief and designs for an installation or furniture. The brief will be determined by the students themselves. The student’s designs will then be progressed to a buildable form, and they will make them full scale over a 2-day workshop. To find out more about the project, read our Design Unlimited leaflet

If you are interested in taking part in this project, please see our ‘Schools we work with’ criteria to check if your school qualifies. You can register your interest or ask any questions by contacting bartlett.outreach@ucl.ac.uk.

After School Club  

The Architecture After School Club aims to introduce secondary school students in Key stage 3 and 4 to new skills and approaches similar to ones taught in The Bartlett School of Architecture, preparing future students for undergraduate education.

For more information about the club take a look at our pilot scheme.

The project is run by Kevin Green of Store Projects, Bartlett alum and Creative Practice Tutor at The Bartlett School of Architecture.
