The Bartlett has returned to the top of The Guardian’s annual league of UK architecture schools
The UCL’s faculty of the built environment, which had topped the newspaper’s rankings for three years in a row until it was knocked from top position by Cambridge last year, has once again returned to the top of the charts.
The London school was also rated second best place to study architecture in the world in a recent ranking by higher education data specialists QS.
The top ten remains largely unchanged from 2015 and includes regulars the Welsh School of Architecture, Bath, and Sheffield School of Architecture, while last year’s chart topper Cambridge dropped down to fourth place.
Two schools have made debuts in the top ten after rising up the table this year - the University for the Creative Arts rose a massive 25 places to ninth position while Huddersfield crept up nine places to sixth place.
Other schools making a significant improvement on last year’s ranking include Coventry, Newcastle, Kingston, and Anglia Ruskin, which shot up the list by 21 places.
