UCL Earth Sciences

How to Apply

How to Apply

Application for admission should be made through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Applicants currently at school or college will be provided with advice on the process; however, applicants who have left school or who are based outside the United Kingdom may obtain information directly from UCAS.

We will assess your application on the basis of your performance, or predicted performance academically, but we will also be looking for an indication of how your interests in the natural sciences in general and in Earth Sciences in particular have developed. We are interested in the aspects of Earth Sciences that particularly appeal to you, and in whether you have undertaken any research or reading to find out about the subject you wish to study.

If you are resident in the UK and your application demonstrates potential you will be invited to an applicant open day. This visit will include introductory talks on Earth Sciences and our degree programmes, a tour of the department and UCL, and a question and answer session. You may also have a one-to-one discussion with an academic member of staff in which we aim to find out more about your personal interests and motivation. Applicants from distant regions and from outside the UK are not normally required to attend for an open day, in which case we reach a decision on making an offer on the basis of the application alone.
