We have three deadlines, but 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 March 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.
Students who wish to be considered for the AHRC Grant (for UK students only) and for any UCL scholarship, must apply by the first deadline. Overseas students wishing to apply for the departmental bursaries must apply by the second deadline at the latest.

14 June 2013 final deadline! for interviews in July 2013
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 and individual interviews (in person or by telephone) will be set up at that time.
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.
