Future degree results

Applications to graduate programmes

The International Pre-Masters does not provide automatic progression onto a Master's programme, and you will make a separate application for a Master's degree.

You are fully supported in applying to Master's degrees through one-to-one sessions with the dedicated education adviser.

If you intend to apply for a UK university other than UCL, you should check whether the IPM is accepted as fulfilling their English language requirements before applying to the IPM.
