Prospective students: undergraduate

As a history undergraduate at UCL, you'll have access to a department of historians all working at the cutting edge of their fields.

UPDATED - Admissions Information: A-Level Results Day 2020

Everyone teaches, and everyone wants to teach you. All of your seminars will be in groups of 15 or fewer (10 or fewer in your final year special subject classes). And every single piece of work you do for us, including exam papers, will be returned to you in a one-to-one tutorial with the person who taught you.

Not all history departments can make these promises.

We teach four undergraduate programmes at UCL History. The BAs in Ancient History and History are three-year courses. History with a European Language and History with a Year Abroad will take you four years of full-time study to complete.

Open days

The best way to find out more and answer any questions that you have about the course or the university is to attend an open day at UCL.

We will be holding three Post-Offer Open Days at the end of March and beginning of February. Those applicants who hold an offer will be contacted directly as these events are by invite only. 

The next pre-applicant university open day will be held in June and September 2020. You can find more details and sign up to attend at the UCL undergraduate open days website.
