Other interview events

We invite all qualified candidates to attend an informal interview with staff from our department. An interview is not compulsory, but we find it extremely useful both for you and for us.

It may also be possible to interview candidates via phone or online. While efficient, however, these prevent applicants from visiting UCL, exploring Bloomsbury, and experiencing firsthand what a special place the department is.

Please get in touch with us (at sts-msc-admissions@ucl.ac.uk) to arrange an interview.
