UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE)


UPC Progression Scholarship

We offer a scholarship each year to the top two students on each UPC pathway. They’ll go to the students with the best academic performance at the end of their international foundation year.


To be eligible, you will be:

  • enrolled on UCL's Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates for Humanities (UPCH) or Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates for Science & Engineering (UPCSE) programme.
  • admitted for undergraduate studies at UCL.

Selection criteria

We award scholarships based on academic performance. The student receiving the scholarship will have the strongest academic performance throughout their UPC pathway. We don’t consider students' financial position when awarding the UPC Progression Scholarship.

Value: benefits and duration

The scholarships include £5,000 for each year of the undergraduate programme. This money is applied to tuition fees.

The annual renewal of the scholarship requires adequate progress. You’ll need to receive an upper second class honours (2:1) or above throughout your course.

Application procedure and deadline

There’s no application procedure for the UPC Progression Scholarship. We consider all UPC students who hold an undergraduate offer at UCL.

Notification of results

CLIE will make its recommendation in July. We’ll notify successful candidates by the end of August.
