UCL Study Abroad


Planning for your departure

You will need to get organised before your departure, and these pages are designed to help you ensure that nothing is forgotten.

Passports & Visas

If you are home student planning to study outside of the EU, or an overseas student, it is likely that you will be required to obtain a visa. 


It is vital that you start to consider your financial situation as early as possible, as you will need plenty of time to apply for financial support.


Organising accommodation for your time abroad is often the biggest priority for students prior to departure.
