Admission requirements

We look for students with drive, intelligence, passion, and the right aptitude. To ensure we enrol students who meet those four criteria, we use the following methods to assess applications.

Applicants whose first language is not English must be able to provide evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language is adequate. UCL’s preferred English language qualification is the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A ‘good level’ is required for MSc Finance, which means an overall grade of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.5 in each of the subtests.
