Studying with The Bartlett School of Planning

MediaCentral Widget Placeholderhttps://mediacentral.ucl.ac.uk/Player/ffjab69G

The Bartlett School of Planning is one of the world’s leading centres for planning education and research. Established in 1914, it has been home to some of the most well-known figures in British planning, including Sir Patrick Abercrombie, Lord William Holford, Lord Richard Llewelyn Davies and Sir Peter Hall. 
The School benefits greatly from its position in a global top-ten research university and in a Faculty of the Built Environment – ‘The Bartlett’ – with an international reputation in architecture, planning and development planning, real estate, construction and project management and a range of related disciplines that is second to none. 
We also benefit from fantastic connections in London and to a wider world of planning practice. Contributors from private and public practice teach on our programmes and lead a number of modules. Senior planning practitioners and other industry specialists are embedded in the School, often as Visiting Professors, and lead on live projects or contribute their expertise and insights to the development of curricula and module content. 
In your time with us, we will use our expertise, Bartlett resources and the advantages of our London location, and seek to equip you with the skills and the knowledge needed for a career in planning or in related areas of professional practice. Above all, we will try to inspire you with a passion for planning and for the creation of better and more sustainable places.
