Advice and resources
A number of resources are available to support prospective and current students but navigating the vast amount of information available online can seem difficult at times. This section aims to signpost you to relevant information and offer support for frequently asked questions received by Postgraduate Studies.
- Living in London
Living in London
UCL offers several different options for accommodation across London. Students may wish to consider the location of the Anna Freud Centre, where the majority of lectures take place, when looking into accommodation options.
The UCL Accommodation Office offers further information.
There are many ways in which you can enjoy student life in London. For more information about managing costs, travel and making the most of your time in London visit Living in London.
Anna Freud Centre
4-8 Rodney Street
The closest underground stations to the Centre is Angel (Northern Line) and Kings Cross St Pancras (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Northern, Piccadily and Victoria Lines and National Rail).
- Meeting new people
Meeting new people
One thing we hear consistently from our students is how much they enjoy the small intimate environment at the Anna Freud Centre and how this facilitates students quickly getting to know each another. Many of our students come from across the world and often arrive to find they have much in common and go on to form lifelong friendships.
Once you have been accepted onto a course, we will put you in touch with others who have also been accepted so that you can begin to share the experience from the very beginning. You are likely to share some teaching with students from other MSc programmes, so you will be exposed to a broad cross section of students from many different countries, all with an interest in child development.
- International students
UCL has put together a Study Abroad Guide in order to help international students, with limited familiarity of London, plan their studies at UCL and the Anna Freud Centre.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this difficult and unsettling time as we work to support our students, colleagues and prospective students.
