International students

We welcome applications from overseas students. Students whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of their ability to understand, speak and write English to a standard that will ensure that language problems do not impede their academic progress. UCL accepts a number of qualifications including the British Council International English Language Testing System (IELTS). UCL’s Language Centre offers both a one year full time Certificate in English for Special purposes and a range of pre-sessional English Language Courses for those who do not meet UCL’s minimum standard.

The International Office is a centre of expertise and advice for overseas students, who are welcome to seek help or guidance in many areas such as visas, immigration, housing, finance, English Language, tuition and fees.
