Mature students and part-time study
We welcome applicants who wish to return to formal study
after a substantial time away from academia.
If you do not have the required entry qualifications you should have alternative qualifications that
demonstrate your academic potential and ability to thrive in your chosen
Please get in touch with the relevant degree programme contact if you'd like to join UCL as a mature student. Please note that applications for full-time study as a mature student are made through UCAS.
Our degrees are principally designed to be taken on a full-time basis; all teaching takes place during the daytime. However, some departments do permit part-time study. Please get in touch with the relevant degree programme contact if you're considering part-time study at UCL.
Note: applications for part-time study are made directly to UCL rather than to UCAS. The only exception to this rule is the Working with Children: Education and Wellbeing (Top-Up) BA/BEd, based in the Instutute of Education; applicants for this programme should apply through UCAS.
