SLMS undergraduate degrees

Faculty of Brain Sciences

Linguistics BA

UCAS code: Q100

The Linguistics BA focuses on the sounds, structures and meanings of language. This includes aspects of phonetics and phonology (how sounds are produced, transmitted and received), morphology (how words are built from smaller elements), syntax (how words are combined to form sentences), and semantics and pragmatics (how meaning depends on context).


Linguistics (International Programme) BA

UCAS code: Q101

This four-year programme is essentially identical to the three-year Linguistics BA, but you will have the opportunity to spend an additional year abroad at one of our partner institutions in Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands or the USA.

SLMS taught and research postgraduate programmes

Faculty of Brain Sciences

Our vision is to solve the greatest health and wellbeing problems in the brain sciences, in order to transform society and reduce the global burden of disease.


The Faculty of Brain Sciences brings together a wealth of scientific and clinical expertise and provides recognised world-class education in both taught and research programmes at graduate level.

Faculty of Life Sciences

The Faculty of Life Sciences is the hub for biological research at UCL.


Research is conducted across the biological scales from molecules through cells and tissues to whole organisms and animal populations, and the recent incorporation of the School of Pharmacy has expanded faculty activity in the area of drug discovery and development.

Faculty of Medical Sciences

We aim to generate a deeper understanding of human disease and drive forward the development of new diagnostic tools and therapeutic interventions.


Operating through partnerships, particularly with our associated NHS hospitals, the Faculty of Medical Sciences is a centre of excellence across a broad range of experimental medicine areas.

Faculty of Population Health Sciences

We seek to deliver outstanding research and teaching for improved human health.


The unifying concept that informs our scholarship and educational activity is the life-course; our research elucidates the biological, behavioural and psychosocial processes operating across an individual’s life, and across generations, that affect the development and progression of disease.


Education information

SLMS Education Domain

The SLMS Education Domain supports efforts to nurture educational leadership across the School, and to facilitate a teaching and learning environment and culture that engages our best researchers in the SLMS educational mission.

It aims to identify and develop innovative educational practice, and share this with all those who teach, or are interested in becoming involved in teaching and learning across the School.

SLMS Academic Careers Office

The mission of the Academic Careers Office (ACO) is to promote, support and develop all aspects of academic and clinical academic careers in the School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) and the UCL/UCLH NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and Biomedical Research Unit at UCL. 

Fitness to Practise

Students on professional training programmes are expected to conduct themselves and to behave in a professional manner at all times, both at UCL, in the workplace and in their conduct outside of work, in line with the professional codes of practice that apply to their discipline.

Professional programmes have a duty to the public to ensure that students seeking to enrol and students who are enrolled meet the relevant standards of professional conduct.

In the first instance programmes at UCL will always seek to support students and to find ways to resolve any issues. Where this is not possible, and serious concerns remain, programmes may refer students to a Fitness to Practise panel.

Within SLMS there are two Fitness to Practise panels – one for students in the Medical School, and the other for students on all other professional programmes in SLMS.

More details about the ways in which programmes manage concerns about Fitness to Practise can be found in the student guides:

Full details of the Fitness to Practice procedure can be downloaded here:
