Entry requirements


A-level/ AS-level: depending on the degree programme, UCL makes offers in the range of A*A*A–ABB, plus a pass in a further Advanced Subsidiary (AS) level subject.

IB: The normal requirement for admission to UCL is the award of the Diploma achieved with good grades across individual subjects. UCL's standard minimum requirement is 34 points overall, with a combined score of 16 achieved in three higher level subjects with no grade lower than 5. However, many of our programmes have higher entry requirements than this.

GCSE: a ll programmes require GCSE or equivalent passes in English Language and Mathematics at grade C or higher. Some programmes require grades higher than C or additional GCSE passes in specified subjects.

For students from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other former USSR countries: The Kazakh secondary school qualification does not meet the general entrance requirement for entry onto an undergraduate degree programme at UCL. However, students who have obtained the Gold Medal award from their High School are particularly encouraged to apply. To be eligible for consideration, a student should usually have successfully completed at least two years of study at a recognised Kazakh university. Alternatively, students who have successfully completed a recognised foundation programme, including the UCL University Preparatory Certificate for Science and Engineering, will be considered.

All students whose first language is not English must be able to provide recent evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language is adequate for the programmes for which they have applied.


All prospective applicants are welcome to contact the academic departments to discuss their potential application.

Please ensure that you have checked the academic and, if appropriate, English language entry requirements for the programme you wish to study before submitting your application. Please also be mindful of any application or funding deadline that might govern your application submission date.


A UK Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject, awarded with first or upper second-class Honours, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard from a university or educational institution of university rank is required.

For some taught programmes, an applicant whose qualifications, although otherwise acceptable, are of lower standard may be admitted if evidence of an adequate academic background and experience in an appropriate field can be shown. In certain instances, applicants may be required to pursue the programme over an extended period of time (including a qualifying year enrolled for Graduate Diploma) and/or pass a qualifying examination before being registered for the degree programme.
