In addition, the following sources of funding are available specifically for students in the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, or for students in the Bartlett School of Planning:

Land Securities Scholarship

This scholarship is for prospective Masters students.  The awards will be made on the basis of academic merit and financial need. Candidates must apply using this application form (Word). The applicant must be a UK student holding a full-time offer. Further details can be found on the webpage for the Land Securities Scholarship.

BSP Centenary and BSP-RTPI Scholarships

We are pleased to offer two ‘BSP Centenary Scholarships’, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the School of Planning, available to students on the MSc Housing Development, and two ‘BSP-RTPI Scholarships’, funded jointly by the School and the professional institute for planning, which are available to students on the MSc Spatial Planning.

These four scholarships are worth £5,000 each, offered as a partial fee-waiver, offered on the basis of academic merit and financial need. The scholarships are only available to students from the UK and EU who have applied to study one of the two degree programmes concerned by the application deadline for entry in September 2015.

Candidates must apply using this application form (Word)

Any queries may be made to Andy Heath in the School of Planning Office. Please disregard the deadline of 31st July specified on the form. This has been extended to 14th August.

The Bartlett Masters Scholarships

The Bartlett, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment, offers 20 scholarships for MSc, MRes, MA and MArch students, each worth £5,000, to be used as partial fee remittance for study. 

The deadline for receipt of all scholarship applications is 16.00 on Friday 29 May 2015. All applicants will be informed of the outcome by email in early August 2015.

All postgraduate students, including continuing students, can be considered for this scholarship, regardless of study mode or fee status. 

The Bartlett, through this award, hopes to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification at UCL. The application form has an Equal Opportunities Monitoring section which asks for details on your ethnicity. We will give priority to students from the following groups:

  • BME applicants
  • International students
  • Those who commenced their undergraduate studies (in a UK university) pre-2012
  • Successful applicants will need to meet two core criteria:
  • Applicants must hold an offer of study to commence study in September 2015 (or be continuing, if following a modular/flexible course of study)
  • Applicants must be able to pay the remainder of their fees and all living expenses

Eligibility will be means-tested and will take into account total funds available to the applicant.

Please note, scholarship applicants do not necessarily require an offer of admission by the deadline date, but will need to have submitted a complete application for study.

To apply, please complete the Masters Scholarship Scheme application form and send it to bartlett.scholarships@ucl.ac.uk

If you have any questions about The Bartlett Masters Scholarship Scheme, please contact Mr Stephen Capus at bartlett.scholarships@ucl.ac.uk or telephone 020 3108 9004. 


The Postgraduate Support Scheme (PSS), at UCL, offers approximately 340 awards of £10,000 each to prospective postgraduate taught students. The aim of the scheme is to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification and is funded jointly by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and UCL.

This is a one-off opportunity for those applying to study a postgraduate taught programme starting in September 2015 only. To be eligible to apply for an award candidates must meet all the eligibility criteria.  The deadline to apply is 29 March 2015.
