Qualifications needed to enter the Postgraduate Research Programme
The minimum qualification needed to enter the PhD or MPhil programme is an upper second class honours degree (2.i) from a UK university or an equivalent class of degree from an overseas university. The degree may be in any relevant subject, e.g. electronic engineering, communication engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, materials science (the latter two for electronic materials research). A lower second class (2.ii) honours degree may be acceptable for entrance to the PhD and MPhil programmes if the applicant has then successfully completed a Masters course in a relevant subject. Applicants from overseas whose first language is not English and who have not previously studied or worked in the UK are required to satisfy UCL's English Language requirement.
