The UCL School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS) is a cosmopolitan and exciting environment for affiliate students from abroad. The School comprises six language departments, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian Studies and Spanish & Latin American Studies. Students are able to choose from a wide range of courses covering literature, linguistics, history, sociology, philosophy, art, film and other aspects of the cultures associated with the languages taught in the School.

Study abroad is at the heart of academic study in SELCS, providing a welcoming environment for all new international students who will be joining a diverse and international staff and student body. The School has over 50 exchange programmes across the World, both within Europe and on a wider international scale.


As an affiliate student, you will:

  • Study alongside regular UCL and international students, benefiting from UCL's world-class teaching system and renowned academics.
  • Have the flexibility to take courses across a range of UCL subjects and departments, tailoring your course to your own particular interests in this area.
  • Have access to your own academic tutor (known as an ‘Affiliate Tutor’).
