Entry requirements

Our taught degree programmes meet a range of needs. Many offer flexible learning options so you can combine study with personal commitments.

Entry requirements

UCL's minimum entry requirements for graduate taught programmes are given below.

All applicants are advised to check the specific entry requirements for the programme they are applying for. A list of graduate taught programmes is provided at

Master's programmes, MRes programmes, Postgraduate Diplomas and Postgraduate Certificates

A first or second class UK Bachelor’s degree in an appropriate subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard from a recognised higher education institution.

For some taught programmes, applicants whose qualifications are of a lower standard may be admitted if they can demonstrate an appropriate academic background and experience in the relevant field. Applicants may be required to pass a qualifying examination, or pass a qualifying year enrolled for a Graduate Diploma, before being registered on a Master’s programme.
