We will consider applications to accredit prior learning at other recognised universities. Advanced standing is only awarded at UCL's discretion. Please read the notes on applying through UCAS and also enquire with the relevant programme contact provided on the degree pages.

Our degrees are principally designed to be taken on a full-time basis; all teaching takes place during the daytime. However, some departments do permit part-time study. Please enquire with the relevant programme contact provided on the degree pages.

Note: applications for part-time study are made directly to UCL, not to UCAS.
