170,000 UCL alumni live in 180 countries worldwide
We’re proud to say UCL is London’s Global University, based in one of the most diverse cities on the planet and with links and partnerships around the world. Around 43% of our students come from outside the UK, and we strive to give all our teaching a global perspective.
We support you every step of the way
If your application to UCL is successful, our Student
Centre will provide information before and after your arrival, from
general information on immigration matters to practical advice to help
you prepare for your time in the UK.
In addition the Student Centre
provides online pre-arrival information for students before they travel
First-year accommodation is guaranteed and further information about our Student Residences can be found on the Student Accommodation website.
Our International Students’ Orientation Programme, held
immediately before the academic year begins in September, is designed to
help you settle in, learn how to access the range of services and
opportunities on offer and adjust to the process of teaching and
learning at UCL.
All non-UK students are invited to attend the
programme, which is free of charge. In addition, social events in the
programme allow you to make new friends.
While a student at UCL, you will have access to all the
academic and welfare support services described in this Prospectus. In
addition, our on-site Student Centre can help you with issues like
opening a UK bank account. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer
your questions or direct you to someone who can.
UCL Careers offers dedicated assistance for international students, whether seeking employment in their home country or considering working in the UK.
As well as A levels and the International Baccalaureate, we accept a wide range of international qualifications. These can be found on the individual programme pages in the Degrees A-Z index.
If the qualifications you gain in your home country do not
meet our entry requirements, you may meet our entry qualifications by
successful completion of a foundation year. Please see information on
Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates.
If your education has not been conducted in the English language you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency. Details of acceptable qualifications and the standard required can be found in Acceptable qualifications.
Staff from the UCL International Office visit countries all over the world – find out when they’ll be near you at:
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.
