All other applicants

Mature students

We welcome applicants who wish to return to formal study after a substantial period of absence. If you do not have the required entrance qualifications you should have alternative qualifications that demonstrate your academic potential and ability to thrive in your chosen subject. Please enquire with the relevant programme contact.

Part-time study

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 enquire with the relevant programme contact. Note: applications for part-time study are made directly to UCL, not to UCAS.

Admission with advanced standing

We will consider applications to accredit prior learning at other recognised universities. As well as applying through UCAS by 15 January, you will need to submit an application directly to UCL. This will carry an administrative charge. Advanced standing is only awarded at UCL’s discretion. Please enquire with the relevant programme contact.

Deferred entry

We welcome applications from students who are proposing to spend a pre-university (gap) year engaged in constructive activity, whether in the UK or abroad.

Our rules allow you to apply for deferred entry and your application will be considered a year ahead of the normal application timetable. Please be sure to include your reasons for wishing to defer your entry in your personal statement, as this will aid our Admissions Selectors in their considerations. Note: it is not possible to be considered for deferred entry if you are applying for a Fine Art programme.
