The Bartlett Promise Scholarship 2023/2024 for Sub-Saharan African Students


The Bartlett Promise represents a long-term commitment to attract and support students from a broader range of backgrounds to study at The Bartlett in order to tackle the lack of diversity in the built environment sector. The scholarships cover fees, living and study costs for scholars, as well as professional and personal support and career advice for the duration of their programme. Now in its second year, the scheme currently supports 21 UK undergraduates, 13 Masters and 4 Ph.D. students with help from our valued donors Jestico + Whiles, Derwent London and the Aziz Foundation.


Full overseas tuition fees, an allowance to cover living and study expenses (£15,364) for the normal duration of the programme at UCL, a flight to/from the UK, UK Study Visa costs, English language assessment costs, health test costs, master’s programme application fee costs and the NHS health supplement charge in the UK. All Promise scholars will also receive ongoing academic and career support during their studies.

  • be a national of one of The Bartlett’s approved list 2 of Sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries and resident in an eligible SSA country
