UCL Graduate degrees


Tuition fee deposits

UCL requires successful applicants to selected postgraduate programmes to pay a tuition fee deposit. Payment of the deposit allows applicants to demonstrate their commitment to attending their chosen programme of study at UCL and aids UCL in its student number planning. Once a successful applicant is enrolled on their programme of study, the deposit will form part of the total tuition fee, as quoted on the offer of admission.

List of postgraduate programmes requiring a tuition fee deposit

Tuition fee schedules for the coming academic session are also available on the UCL Students website. Please note that the required tuition fee deposit must be paid in full by the deadline specified in the offer of admission, which will usually be no earlier than 1 April for entry the following September.

Should a deposit apply to your intended programme, please take time to read UCL's tuition fee deposit policy. Payment of the tuition fee deposit (in full or in part) will be considered as acceptance of the terms detailed in the policy.
