  • AJ100
  • Readers of the 'Architects' Journal' have once again judged the UCL Bartlett to be the top UK school of architecture. In the annual AJ100 poll of the UK's 100 largest architectural practices, the school gained 35 per cent of the vote, comfortably beating second placed University of Sheffield (18 per cent) and third placed London neighbours, the Architectural Association (12 per cent). This is the fifth consecutive year that the school has been voted top.

    Professor Iain Borden, Head of the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, said: "I am delighted that the Bartlett continues in first place - a spot it has occupied ever since the AJ100 began covering architectural education five years ago. We have a wide-ranging relationship with a large number of professional architects and firms - as tutors, critics, examiners, sponsors and friends - and this extensive network is clearly helping to recognise the considerable achievements of all of our students and staff."
