    All students who enrol are dual-enrolled at both UCL and HSE from Year 1. As part of the requirements for HSE, you will be required to provide translated and certified copies of documents into Russian, including passport, transcript and degree certificates. We will contact you with further details once you accept an offer, but we advise students this can take some time to obtain and can cost approximately £300-400. Documents will need to be provided by August of the year of entry. You do not need to provide these at the point of application, only if you accept and decide to proceed with enrolment.
