UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies


London Junior Year Abroad in History and Philosophy of Science STS UCL


History and Philosophy of Science (HPS)

Study in London. Study at UCL. Our "History and Philosophy of Science" affiliate programme allows you to spend a term or a year in the largest department of its kind in the UK, and a department with consistently top marks from students in national surveys about teaching quality. 

Don't let the terminology confuse. Sometimes these affiliate programmes are called "junior-year abroad" (JYA) or "study abroad" or "student exchange".  It's normally the same thing. Our programme is designed for students currently studying elsewhere who want to visit UCL, take modules in our department, then receive credit back home. 

The HPS affiliate programme is managed centrally by UCL - details are found on UCL Affiliates. We look forward to hearing from you. For more information, read the UCL Study Abroad guide. UCL code: UAFHPSSING01. 

For the future, note the department has one affiliate programme (HPS) at present. we are developing others, too, to make available the fantastic modules we offer in science policy and science communication. When we have official information, we'll post it here.
