How to Apply

Here you will find information on how to apply for Masters programmes at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Applications for 2022/23 open on 18th October 2021.

The application deadline for both the MSc and MRes programmes is 31st March 2022.

To submit your application, please go to the UCL Graduate Degrees Application page. Here you will be provided with instructions and asked to accept certain conditions (by clicking the blue button at the bottom of the page) in order to start your application.

Applications are not evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. However, we do make offers on a rolling basis and it is possible all places on the programme will have been allocated before the July deadline. You are therefore encouraged to submit your application as soon as you can. Please do be aware that unlike the UCL standard six weeks for a decision you may have to wait longer for a Cognitive Neuroscience Masters course. This is because the course is very popular and each application is considered in depth.

If you have any questions about the application process you can contact the Admissions Department directly at: admissions@ucl.ac.uk or +44 (0) 20 7679 7742/7381. Alternatively you can always email as us at cogneuro_admin@ucl.ac.uk in the first instance whatever your query is. We will be happy to signpost you or forward your email on if we cannot directly assist.

For the purposes of application, both the MSc and MRes degrees are considered postgraduate taught degrees. Applicants should therefore use this route through the UCL admissions process. MSc applicants should apply to programme code TMSPSYSCOG09, and MRes applicants should use programme code TMRPSYSCOG12
