The table below shows the entry criteria for the MSc in Neuroscience.

Some offers are made automatically if the applicant satisfies the necessary criteria outlined in the table below. UK based automatic offer holders will be invited to visit UCL at one of our open days to learn more about the degree.  Overseas based automatic offer holders will be contacted by one of the course tutors for an informal discussion by telephone.

Applicants who do not satisfy the automatic offer criteria might be invited to an interview to determine whether they have the sufficient background for the MSc Neuroscience. UK based applicants will be invited to visit UCL for an interview and overseas based applicants will be interviewed by telephone.

All applicants whose first language is not English must provide recent evidence that their standard of written and spoken English is adequate for studying at graduate level. UCL's Graduate English Language Requirements web page provides information about acceptable tests and guidelines.
