Postgraduate Taught Degrees

  • Medicine is a multi-disciplinary division incorporating a spectrum of specialties and a wide range of scientific, clinical and educational expertise.
  • Students benefit from productive collaborations between scientists and clinical researchers and exposure to the clinical aspects of research activities.
  • The Division has access to world-class research facilities and equipment, including the Centre for Biomedical Research at our Royal Free campus and the Clinical Research Facility at University College London Hospital (UCLH).

Tuition fees cover all elements of tuition, registration and examination. Fees for subsequent years of study are subject to increase and this is implicit in accepting the offer of a place at UCL.

Your tuition fee will normally be quoted on your offer letter and you must pay at least 50% of your tuition fee before or at enrolment to be fully enrolled, or provide a letter of sponsorship indicating who should be invoiced for your fees.

Division of Medicine Postgraduate Taught Bursaries

There are eight awards funded by the Division of Medicine, which will be available for Home/EU students starting in 2015/16 only. Each award will be worth £2500 in total, and will be deducted from the full tuition fees.

The deadline is 31st July 2015

For entry on to our MSc programmes students will require a minimum of a 2.1 Bachelors degree in a biological science, medical or healthcare discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.

If your first language is not English you must be able to provide recent evidence that your spoken and written command of the English language is adequate for the programmes for which you have applied.

Applications and Entry FAQ

I haven't taken an English language test yet. Can I still apply now or do I have to wait for my test result?

You can still submit an application if you have not yet taken an English test provided that all other documents have been submitted (transcripts and references). Any offer will be conditional upon meeting the English language requirements.

Can I apply if I do not have a degree?

No. UCL requires evidence of a very good academic achievement, at degree level, from all applicants.

Can I apply if I don’t have a medical, biological science or health-care related degree?

In order to successfully complete our postgraduate taught degrees applicants will require a good understanding of bioscience.  If you don’t have a medical, biological science or health-care related degree and are unsure about your suitability please contact the relevant Course Tutor for advice, outlining the subjects which you have previously studied and the level at which you studied them. 

Will I get student accommodation in London?

We endeavour to offer to all students accommodation in or around the main UCL campus in central London. 

In which location will my teaching take place?

Core teaching will take place on the Bloomsbury campus. There may also be scheduled teaching at other sites, such as University College London Hospital or the Royal Free Hospital.
