Once approved for an Erasmus UCL placement by your home university you will have to apply directly to UCL.

If you are studying towards a Bachelor’s degree, you will need to apply at Undergraduate affiliate level. Further information is given in our Study Abroad Guide.

If you are studying towards a Master’s degree you will need to apply at Postgraduate Taught Affiliate level, and if you are studying towards a PhD, you will need to apply at Visiting Research level. See here for further information.

All these options can be selected from the drop down menu on the application portal.

English Language Requirements 

Students who will study on a Student Visa to study at UCL under an Erasmus agreement will be asked to satisfy the English language requirement at B2 Level or higher to meet the requirement of the programme and the UKVI. This will be made a condition of offer for successful applicants.
Erasmus applicants who intend to study on a Standard Visitor Visa should contact affiliate-admissions@ucl.ac.uk after receiving an offer to confirm that they will enter on a Standard Visitor Visa and not a Student Visa.
