OS Students at UCL
Undergraduate Affiliate & Junior Year Abroad (JYA) Students
It is possible to apply to UCL as an undergraduate affiliate student. As an undergraduate affiliate student you will normally spend either one term or the full academic year at UCL following a similar programme of study to UK students. The following study options are possible:
- Full Year (September – June)
- Autumn Term (September – December)
- Spring & Summer Term (January – June)
You will remain registered as a student at your home university and so will not receive your degree from UCL. Unless you are coming to study at UCL under the terms of an exchange, you will be required to pay tuition fees to UCL for the duration of your time here.
Most undergraduate affiliate students come from outside the EU, usually from the US or Canada as part of their Junior Year Abroad (JYA). These students will normally have completed or expect to complete two years of study at an approved university, prior to their entry to UCL. It is not recommended that Sophomores study abroad at UCL, although exceptions can be made (January entry only). Candidates should be in good academic standing. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 (or equivalent) is normally expected, but some departments expect at least 3.5 and a good background in relevant subjects. Admissions Tutors need to be confident that you have sufficient academic background in their subject (and enthusiasm for it) to enable you to take classes alongside regular degree students.
EU students who wish to study full-time at UCL can only be considered if they apply as part of the Erasmus programme. UCL does not accept Erasmus free-mover students. Only EU students who wish to study at UCL on a part-time basis may apply as an undergraduate affiliate.
