Undergraduate Offer Holders


About your offer

Your offer of admission to UCL is based on the information you submitted as part of your UCAS application, and any additional information we requested from you. If any of the information you have provided proves to be incorrect or incomplete, we reserve the right to review and possibly withdraw your offer of admission.

Deferred entry

If your offer is for deferred entry then you must still meet any offer conditions by 2 September 2022. If you are successful in meeting these conditions then we will expect you to enrol in September 2023. You will need to submit any applications for accommodation or funding in 2023.

Subjects requested

The Admissions Selector has taken into account all of the information you provided in your UCAS application. The offer you have been made is based on the range of subjects which are most relevant to your degree. As detailed in our Undergraduate Prospectus, UCL does not consider General Studies or Critical Thinking and therefore these subjects will be excluded from the requirements of any conditional offer. Likewise, an A level in your native language may not be counted.

Dropping a subject

Your offer of admission has been based on the subjects listed in your UCAS application. If you wish to accept UCL as your Firm or Insurance choice it is important that you contact us if you intend to make any changes to the subjects you are currently studying. This information will be considered by the Admissions Selector. Failure to do so may result in your offer of admission being withdrawn.

Meeting the conditions

All conditions in your offer letter must be met by 2 September 2021. If you do not meet the conditions by this date your application will be made unsuccessful. Our final decision will be sent to UCAS and displayed on UCAS Track as well as the UCL Portal.

What happens if you are ill leading up to or during the examination period?

If you have been ill at any point leading up to or during the examination period, or have any other mitigating circumstances, then you should submit these to the examination board via your school. Mitigating circumstances will not be considered by UCL.

General conditions of entry

In addition to any specific conditions stipulated, UCL’s offer of admission is also subject to the following standard conditions:


That you provide evidence (translated into English if applicable) of the qualifications that entitle you to be registered for the programme to which you have been offered admission. Details of the necessary procedures will be forwarded to you in June. Please note that any requested verification must be supplied to UCL by 2 September 2022 at the latest.

Tuition fee status

That in accepting this offer you agree to pay tuition fees at the rate stated on your offer letter. Should you wish to challenge UCL’s assessment you must write to UCL within three months of the date of this letter. If your fee status is undetermined, you must return the enclosed fee status questionnaire within three months. Please note if your tuition fee status is still undetermined at the start of your programme, you will be invoiced at the Overseas rate of tuition fees.

UCL determines whether the UK/EU or Overseas rate of tuition fees should be charged in accordance with the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 and subsequent amendments but shall judge each case as it shall see fit at its absolute discretion.

Tuition fees

That you formally accept responsibility for the payment to UCL of the tuition fees in respect of your programme, although it is understood that a sponsor may in fact pay those tuition fees. Any tuition fee quoted on your offer letter is for guidance only and the definitive tuition fee will be quoted on your Portico account.

Proficiency in the English language

A good command of English is required by students to undertake their programme successfully. A list of acceptable English language qualifications can be found on our website and should be checked if your offer of admission specifies that you must meet this requirement. Please note, any extra expense incurred in doing so will be your responsibility.

Criminal convictions

You are required to inform UCL of any criminal conviction(s) between application and enrolment.


If you accept UCL’s offer of admission and subsequently behave in a way that is liable to bring UCL into disrepute, UCL reserves the right to withdraw your offer of admission. This applies regardless of whether the behaviour in question occurs on UCL premises or elsewhere, and regardless of whether it involves action in person or by the use of electronic media.

That upon registering you agree to abide by the present rules, regulations and statutes of UCL. The more important of those rules and regulations are summarised on the UCL Students website.

All students are required to enrol with UCL Student & Registry Services within two weeks of the start of their programme. Information on the enrolment process is available on the UCL New Students website.

If, having started a programme, a student’s academic progress is unsatisfactory, UCL reserves the right to require any student to withdraw from the programme.
