The Application Process

The vast bulk of information regarding application to the MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology—including qualifications for international students, English language proficiency requirements, and links to the application itself—can be found on the UCL Application & Entry page.

Information specifically about the MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology, including the level of fees for the coming year, can be found in the UCL prospective students page.

Typically the time from application submission to formal notification of an admission decision is roughly 4-6 weeks, but this varies considerably with the time-of-year. The formal application deadline is in late July/early August, but applicants are advised to submit their materials well before that time to be ensured full consideration and to minimize delays in processing.

Note in particular that international students are advised to submit an application for admission to study at UCL as early as possible. Early application for admission will help students meet any required deadlines for applying for degree programmes, for UCL accommodation, for any scholarship or funding applications, and for obtaining a student visa.

Note also that international applicants are generally ineligible for part-time study. This is less a policy of UCL per se than a result of UK government stipulations on the amount of weekly study hours required to hold a UK student visa.
