At 1:10, UCL has the lowest staff-to-student ratio of any public UK university
Funding - international students
We offer you a range of scholarships if you’re a student from overseas. These vary in terms of both value and eligibility criteria. They include:
- the International Outreach Bursaries (in partnership with the United World Colleges) which cover fees, maintenance and travel.
- official student loan schemes if you’re from the US or Canada.
If you’re a student from outside the UK and have a disability, you may receive support through the UCL Fund for International Disabled Students.
You can work part-time, as many students do, to supplement your income during your studies.
That said, we’d like to emphasise that your academic work should take priority! One of the many benefits of studying and living in London is there is no shortage of opportunities for varied and reasonably paid part-time work. UCLU’s JobShop service could help you find flexible part-time employment.
International students who require a visa or prior entry clearance are normally permitted to work for up to 20 hours per week during term-time and full-time in the vacations. This restriction applies to voluntary as well as to paid employment.
We know that financial issues can seem a little daunting, but a good starting point for information about funding opportunities is the Ministry of Education in your home country.
In addition, the UNIAID International Student Calculator can help you plan and manage your money for your studies.
For more information about the funding opportunities available to prospective applicants, please visit the Scholarships and Funding website.
