University College, London (UCL) was founded in 1826 as a drastically different university, opening up English higher education for the first time to people of all beliefs and social backgrounds. That tradition remains alive today. UCL is a modern institution, one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities. 21 Nobel prize winners have come from the UCL University. Around 34% of UCL students come from outside the UK, attracted from nearly 140 countries around the globe.
Applicants should apply as early as they are able; the number of places on each programme is limited. Overseas applicants should note that if accepted by UCL, entry clearance to the UK can take a considerable amount of time and therefore applications should be made as early as possible.
Funding is open to prospective and current UCL students, but they also provide information about schemes that are available for study at any UK universities.
Funding schemes include scholarships, awards, prizes, medals, bursaries, and loans.
For most funding schemes, only students currently enrolled and/or candidates holding an offer of admission to UCL for the relevant academic year as specified in the scholarship descriptions can be considered for funding. Applicants without an offer of admission to UCL when applying for funding may be excluded from the competition.
Several funding schemes are open to students to pay or contribute towards their tuition fees, either at the UK/EU “home” rate or at the overseas rate. Fee status will be assessed on the basis of your application for admission to UCL (see above), and will be shown in your offer of admission. Unless indicated otherwise, funding schemes are open to UK, EU and overseas applicants.
