The Bartlett


Masters offer holders

This information is being provided for everyone we are expecting to join us to commence study on a Masters programme here at UCL this autumn. It contains some helpful information about arrangements for the start of the 2022-23 academic session, commonly known as Induction Week.

Coronavirus FAQs for prospective students

Significant coronavirus restrictions have been eased in England. We currently expect students will study fully on campus.

We have strong contingency plans for any resurgence of coronavirus in London, so that you can continue your education with us whatever the circumstances. We will keep our plans under continuous review, guided by the UK Government and insights from UCL’s own world leading health experts.

For more information, please keep checking UCL's Coronavirus FAQ page.

Deferring your start date

To request a deferral of your start date, please use the applicant portal. Your request will be considered by the relevant Programme Leader.

Please note that The Bartlett School of Architecture are not currently permitting deferrals.

Visa and CAS information

Please refer to the UCL Student website for information. 

Please note that you do not need a CAS number / Student Visa to enrol and join the programme, which starts on 26 September. UCL enrolment is online and therefore you will be able to complete enrolment and start your programme before you obtain your Student visa. When you do get your CAS number and then obtain your Student Visa, you can then join us in London. We do understand that starting online and then changing to 'on campus' study is not ideal. Immigration advice for prospective students during COVID-19 is available on our UCL Students website. Alongside any on-campus experience you may have, we want to make sure you have a high-quality, collaborative and engaging online learning experience.

Pre-enrolment and enrolment

Pre-enrolment is a quick and easy online task in which you confirm various details about you and your programme. Completing pre-enrolment is the first step towards starting out at UCL.

You will receive an invite to pre-enrol once you have met all of the conditions of your offer, completed any statutory checks and accepted your place at UCL. If you are an international student, you may pre-enrol before receiving your Confirmation of Studies (CAS) number, although your enrolment will not be finalised until UCL Visa Compliance are assured that you will have the necessary entry clearance (visa) to begin your studies by 15 October 2021 or have been offered alternative arrangements (remote learning). 

The latest date to pre-enrol is 14 October 2021.

Please see the UCL Students website for further information.

Module selection

Please see the UCL Student website for information about the module registration process, including deadlines, module information, timetable clashes and common questions about what to do if your choice is declined. 

Module registration will close for all students in October 2022 (date TBC). However, you are strongly encouraged to complete the process as early as possible so that it does not interfere with your registration on the modules in question.

You can access module registration via the 'My Studies' page on Portico, where you will see a container labelled 'My Modules'.

Before selecting modules, you’ll be asked some questions about how you plan to study this year. To help your department plan teaching you will be asked whether you intend to study on campus (attending in person teaching where it is offered) or remotely during term one.

If you are coming to campus, we’ll ask you to let us know when. You can update your answers by logging into Portico and clicking on the 'Study Intentions 2020/21' container.

Information for non-UK students

To help make the transition into life in the UK and studying at UCL as smooth as possible, the International Student Support team delivers the International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) for all non-UK students starting their studies at UCL. 

Introductory programmes and inductions

A new interactive online learning experience, the Introductory Programme will help you get to know UCL - its values, its community and its achievements - before you start your programme. 

The academic department where you are studying will contact you regarding introductory sessions particular to your programme of study.

We will be holding faculty-wide welcome events hosted by our Dean, Professor Christoph Lindner, our Vice-Dean (Education) Professor Iain Borden, and some of our alumni. If you have any questions about these sessions, please contact our Student Experience Manager, Tom McMahon (t.mcmahon@ucl.ac.uk).
