How To Enrol

Enrolment Periods

Enrolment for the Summer Term of the 2015/16 academic year is now open. Please note this will be for the third term of a three-term course and those joining at this point will require sufficient existing knowledge of the language. Complete beginners should wait until October 2016 when courses commence from the beginning.

If you are applying for a course with more than one class at each level, such as Russian or Serbian/Croatian, please also email eveningcourses@ucl.ac.uk specifying your preferred day of the week.


The best way to enrol for the 2015/16 academic year is using our Online Enrolment Form.

Those who attended in Term 2 do not need to fill out the form - please see the End of Term email for payment details. New students should fill out the enrolment form and email the office their completed Assessment Form (see below).

You can also download a paper copy of the form and return it to the office by email or post.

Complete Beginners

  • Complete beginners should apply for the first part of a Beginners Language Course, starting in October (i.e. Lessons 1 - 10)
  • You do not need to be assessed prior to enrolment
  • Complete your enrolment form and submit it during the relevant enrolment period and before the deadline


  • All non-beginners studying in any term (Autumn, Winter, Summer) need to be assessed prior to enrolment to ensure they are placed in the most appropriate class
  • During the assessment process, you will have an opportunity to speak with your prospective teacher
  • Submit your enrolment form
  • Complete the assessment form and email it to eveningcourses@ucl.ac.uk
  • Once submitted, it will be passed to your prospective teacher, who will phone you to learn more about you and your language studies
  • You will then be contacted by the Evening Courses Office with details of the class the teacher has advised you to join
  • Please note: We will not be able to process your application until we have received BOTH your enrolment form and your assessment form

Intermediate and Advanced Russian Students

Students applying for places on Lower Intermediate, Upper Intermediate, and Advanced Russian courses also need to complete a brief multiple choice placement test. The tests are self-scored (i.e. the answers are at the end).

After you have done the test, calculate your score, and write it on the bottom of your assessment form.
