UCL offers a range of financial awards aimed at assisting prospective and current, undergraduate and postgraduate, students with their studies. For further information on scholarships currently available, please see the UCL Scholarships page.

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:


The School of Planning is pleased to announce it is funding ten £5,000 scholarships to prospective Masters students holding an offer of a place on a planning Masters programme for the 2014-15 academic year.  The awards will be made on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must apply using this application form.  Full and part-time students, and home, EU and international students will all be considered.  Further information is available on this guidance document.


This scholarship is for prospective Masters students.  The awards will be made on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must apply using this application form. 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.


(TBC) The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment will once again be offering Masters students (including all prospective students for Bartlett School of Planning MSc programmes) 20 scholarships, each worth £5,000, to be used as partial fee remittance for study in 2014/15. Additionally two Wates Bursaries of £5,000 from The Wates Family Enterprise Trust will be available. The eligibility criteria are the same except that a preference will be given to MSc subjects centered on the construction industry, built or rural environments.  The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need.  Applicants will need to complete a separate application form (this will be soon available with further details).


The Bartlett School of Planning has received funding to help widen participation in postgraduate education by running a Summer School in June 2014 and offering fourteen full fees plus cost of living bursaries for students studying on the MSc Spatial Planning, MSc Housing Development, MSc Transport and City Planning, or MSc Urban Regeneration in 2014-15.

The bursaries are aimed at those UK students who might not otherwise be able to afford to study an MSc degree and further details are available on the UCL Graduate Support Scheme page. All those interested in a bursary are strongly encouraged to attend the Summer School as this will offer a taste of the courses and help determine which of the four is most appropriate for you.  The Summer School is free to attend and full details are available here.

  • Henry Herbert Bartlett Travel Scholarship: For study/travel to anywhere in the world
  • Owings Travel Scholarship: For study/travel to the USA
  • Maggie Scruton Memorial Travel Scholarship: For study/travel to France
