Foundation courses (international applicants)

The Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates (UPCs) are for international students of high academic potential who are aiming to gain access to undergraduate degree programmes at UCL or other top UK universities but whose education systems in their own countries do not offer qualifications suitable for direct admission.

These intensive and challenging courses combine the study of two academic subjects, usually alongside Academic English. All teaching is delivered by UCL staff within the university.

UPC students are registered as UCL students, meaning they have access to all the academic, welfare, social and cultural resources we have to offer. UPC students are also supported with their UCAS application and our aim is to ensure that on completing the course, they can confidently embrace the demands of university study and life in the UK.
