Entry requirements

Academic record:

A UK degree or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.(2:1) or graduates without the relevant degree classification but with extensive relevant work experience are welcome to apply and will be considered on an individual basis. 

Language requirement:

There are five levels of English proficiency needed to meet UCL’s English language requirements for graduate study. For this programme, English proficiency must be at Level 1.

Level 1 is equivalent to IELTS at level 6.5 or above, with no area less than 6.0 in the sub-tests.

Please note that although we encourage you to have your English proficiency score ready when you apply, you can submit an application without having completed and acquired your English language exam. If you do this however we are unable to provide you with a firm offer until scores are submitted. UCL does accept scores from other tests instead.
