The department welcomes applications from overseas students for both its taught Master’s degree programmes and research degrees. Over recent years students have come from Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Ireland, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates and the United States.
All applicants for graduate programmes are required to hold, or to expect to hold prior to entry, a first-class or second-class Honours degree from a UK university, or its equivalent from a recognised overseas institution. Before beginning a programme of study all students whose first language is not English are required to provide recent evidence of their ability to understand and use English to a standard that will ensure that language problems do not substantially impede their academic progress. UCL accepts a number of English Language qualifications including the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) at a minimum overall grade of 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests. A full list of acceptable English Language qualifications is included in UCL’s Graduate Applications Pack.
UCL’s Language Centre offers both a one-year full-time Certificate in English for Special Purposes and a range of pre-sessional English Language Courses for those who do not meet UCL’s minimum standard.
The International Office is a centre of expertise and advice for overseas students, who are welcome to seek help or guidance in many areas such as immigration, housing, finance, English Language tuition and fees.

For overseas students we must request a contribution towards the cost of the research in the form of additional research expenses. Typically these will range from £2,000 to £10,000 per year and will be agreed before the research programme begins.
