Pre-application form

We recommend all prospective students submit a pre-application screening form as the first stage of their application.

This is not a formal application to either institution, but it enables us to assess a candidate’s suitability before they make a formal, full application. (Fees may apply to full applications)

Candidates may express a preference for either UCL or University of Cambridge at the pre-application stage.
Shortlisted candidates are invited to interview.

If successful at interview, candidates will be invited to make a full application to either UCL or University of Cambridge.

Pre-applications are processed on an ongoing basis between November and June. Interviews take place monthly. Candidates should submit pre-applications before the end of June for September intake.

Tip: It is advisable to prepare and save your pre-application information in a separate document before completing the online form. The form cannot be saved and you may lose data if you experience technical difficulties.
