The vast bulk of information regarding application to the Digital Anthropology MSc—including qualifications for international students, English language proficiency requirements, and links to the application itself—can be found on the UCL Application & Entry page.

Typically the time from application submission to formal notification of an admission decision is roughly 4-6 weeks, but this varies considerably with the time-of-year. The formal application deadline is 2 August 2013, but applicants are advised to submit their materials well before that time to be ensured full consideration and to minimize delays in processing.

Note in particular that international students are advised to submit an application for admission to study at UCL as early as possible. Early application for admission will help students meet any required deadlines for applying for degree programmes, for UCL accommodation, for any scholarship or funding applications, and for obtaining a student visa.

Note also that international applicants are generally ineligible for part-time study. This is less a policy of UCL per se than a result of UK government stipulations on the amount of weekly study hours required to hold a UK student visa.

Application Fee

UCL now has an application processing fee for all postgraduate taught programmes. The fee will be set at £25 for online applications and £50 for paper applications. The application fee is non-refundable, and if you apply for more than one programme the fee is payable for each application submitted.


The Anthropology department is delighted to announce that it will be awarding a number of Mary Douglas Awards, collectively worth £32,000, to students applying for our Master’s programmes for entry in September 2013.  These fee waivers, worth between £1000 -£ 4000 pounds depending on the programme, will be available across all eight of the masters programmes and will be awarded based on the merit of individual applications. 

To find out what awards are available under the programme you are interested in, please contact  James Emmanuel (james.emmanuel@ucl.ac.uk). 

To be eligible for consideration for these awards, your application must have been received by Wednesday 15th May 2013.  All applications received by then will be put forward for consideration.
