Please note that UCL does not offer part-time study for Student visa students.
The UK Home Office has expanded the Student Route to include part-time study which allows some international postgraduate students to study a part-time programme in the UK.
UCL has carefully considered this visa route and has decided not to offer the Student part-time study visa. As such it is only possible to receive Student visa sponsorship from UCL if you are studying on a full-time programme.
There were a number of factors considered in making this decision, most notably that the part-time Student visa route is very restrictive for students. Under this visa:
- Part-time students cannot bring dependants to the UK.
- Part-time students must pay the Immigration Health Surcharge for the full duration of the programme
- Part-time students cannot undertake any work in the UK. This includes unpaid work placements and internships.
