Students who would like to be considered for departmental or UCL funding have to apply by the first deadline (12 January 2015).  Generally, we encourage students to submit their applications as early as possible. Early applicants have the best chance of getting a place in the Special Subject Courses of their choice. Later applications (coming in between February and the final deadline in mid-June) will be considered if places are available; we try to make decisions on these by the end of July.

Deadlines
12 January 2015

The application requires a statement of purpose from the student, two letters from referees and an academic transcript. The student should indicate in their initial application the Special Subjects they are interested in. Students will be contacted by the department shortly after the deadline.

Students should familiarise themselves with the course options that are offered through the department. Please note that all options will not be offered in every year.

Once students have been offered a place in the department, they are then eligible for funding.
