HofA Affiliate & Erasmus Students
NB Both North American Study Abroad and Erasmus Exchange students are admitted to the Department of History of Art.
As well as admitting overseas students on to our full BA degree programme, the department also welcomes students (who are already declared History of Art majors) who wish to study at UCL for a year or less, while remaining registered at their ‘home’ university. Such Affiliate students register for the same History of Art courses as their UCL BA counterparts, depending on their background and level of specialism within the discipline. Once admitted to the department, all new Affiliates will have meetings with the History of Art Affiliate Tutor, Diana Dethloff, who will give detailed advice and guidance to ensure all students make the best possible use of the wide range of opportunities available in the History of Art Department itself and in other departments within UCL.
Students may choose to specialise in courses within a particular time period or to range more widely over the courses on offer in any one year, perhaps combining courses in History of Art with those in another UCL department. It is, however, understood that all Affiliates admitted to this department will take at least 50% of their course load with us.
Admission to the department is highly competitive and prospective students must be in good standing with their home universities; students from North America must have at least a GPA of 3.3. It is possible to apply for the full academic year, which runs from late September to early June; or for the autumn term only; or for the Spring semester.
Many members of staff in the department have studied or taught in north America and Europe, and we all value the internationalism of the department and UCL in general. Both staff and students benefit enormously from the presence of students from other countries and our visitors are likely to enjoy not only the many academic opportunities we offer but also the friendly and relaxed atmosphere here in the department.
PLEASE NOTE: Each year the selection of COURSES OFFERED will change as not all courses can be offered every year. Students are advised to check at the beginning of the term for a list of COURSES OFFERED.
Students applying to this department should in the first instance apply through the International Office at UCL.
