Student crit during the 2017 Bartlett Summer School

Professional training at The Bartlett is unlike anywhere else. The unrivalled range of disciplines across the faculty and the pool of experts in every built environment field mean we can design programmes that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of practice, and that fit the needs – current and future – of any organisation.

Our client-centric approach makes our teaching more interactive, creative and engaging; we measure its impact by the long-term partnerships it has led to with clients large and small.
