About Faculty of Population Health Sciences

Central to our mission is to improve health for all. We seek to do this through training the next generation of public and global health leaders, while influencing health policies and programmes globally through our research.

Our exciting cross-disciplinary community encompasses ten institutes, schools and centres collectively including: the UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care, the UCL Institute for Global Health and the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.




The student experience is at the heart of our educational vision. UCL provides the resources associated with a world-leading university, and our Institutes have excellent discipline-specific facilities. For example, newly refurbished laboratories at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and recent investment in non-invasive imaging, high-speed computing and 'omics' analysis capabilities, have increased opportunities for research projects. UCL also provides students with a wealth of services to meet their cultural, social, and leisure interests and their practical needs. One of the many advantages of being in the centre of London is our links to, and collaborations with, a number of clinical partners and leading policy-making institutions, including the Medical Research Council (MRC), Wellcome Trust, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Public Health England, NICE, the Department of Health, the Francis Crick and Alan Turing Institutes and UCL's partner health facilities and Biomedical Research Centres.

If you are UK national, Republic of Ireland national, a citizen of a Crown Dependency or have Pre-settled or Settled status you will not require a visa to study at UCL. Most other students will usually require a student visa to study at UCL if they are coming to study in the UK for more than 6 months. However, a number of different UK visas will still allow you to study in the UK so please visit our student visa webpages to check which visa you will need.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis and therefore may close earlier than the advertised deadline. We recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible. Please refer to a programme’s prospectus page for the application deadline.

We know applying for courses can be daunting, so we’ve made this guide (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught-degrees/applying-graduate-taught-study-ucl?utm_source=findamasters&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=117427_phs_pgt_2024&utm_content=department_profile) to help you through. Please note: you can only apply to a maximum of two taught graduate programmes in any academic cycle.

The English language requirements for a programme are stated on the programme’s prospectus page. You may be required to meet one of UCL’s five levels of English language proficiency, or obtain specific scores in a UCL-recognised test. UCL’s English language policy details all of the ways in which you can meet the minimum English language requirement for your chosen programme of study.
