UCL is London's Global University. The diversity of our students and staff is integral to our values and outlook.
We know that our international students have a lot more to organise than our home students, with visas to sort out before you get here, and many more regulations and responsibilities to understand once you arrive. In order to help answer your questions and support your journey, UCL has two designated departments which are there to help prospective and current international students.
UCL International Office
The International Office provides support and answers for prospective international students who are considering studying at UCL.
It is a centre of expertise and advice for students from overseas, and provides you with information on matters such as immigration regulations, sources of funding, English language requirements, tuition and fees.
UCL International Student Support
This department helps our current international students and those who are about to start their studies at UCL.
They can assist you as much as possible with settling into the UCL community; their website is designed to guide you through your journey as a learner at UCL.
UCL offers a range of summer schools and short courses to suit your language level, age, needs and aims. All summer schools are taught on campus by highly qualified UCL staff with expertise in teaching international students. Summer schools on offer include:
- UCL Summer School for students currently at other universities who want to study a specific subject for academic credits
- UCL Pre-University Summer Schol for International High School Students for students who want a taste of university life across a broad range of subjects and develop their English language skills
- UCL Summer/Spring English Courses for International University Students for students who want to improve their English language skills and experience British culture
- Summer Intensive Modern Foreign Language Courses for students who want to rapidly improve their language skills over a two week period of intensive study
Visit the UCL Centre for Languages and International Education (CLIE) website for more information and programme dates.
