Arrival at UCL in Year 3

Before you come to UCL for your third year, you will need to fill out the CAS form which you can find here: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/students/immigration-and-visas/student-visa/confirmation-acceptance-studies 

Once you have filled it out, please send it to the Dual Degree coordinator, who will add their approval and signature. After that, you can submit the form through AskUCL. Please note that you will be considered a 'continuing student' when filling out the form.

Dual Degree Coordinator:
Dr Mart Kuldkepp - m.kuldkepp@ucl.ac.uk (until 31st August 2021)
Prof. Kristin Bakke - kmbakke@ucl.ac.uk (from 1st September 2021)

Application for UCL Accommodation

Dual Degree students are guaranteed a place in UCL accommodation in their third year. Second year students should apply to UCL Student Accommodation for accommodation in their third year by 31st May of their second year. The accommodation portal normally opens in early February so applications can be submitted anytime from February until 31st May. The application needs to be made as a "first year" rather than as a "third year" student.

A reminder email to complete the application process will be sent from EISPS to all second year students at the end of January. EISPS will supply the Accommodation Office with a list of second year students at the end of May so that applications for accommodation from this cohort are dealt with in the same way as those of incoming first year students.
