The UCL School of Management Affiliate programmes attract students from all over the world, coming from top institutions with backgrounds in business, management, economics, statistics, and engineering, amongst others. The School is split over two sites in London with undergraduate teaching taking place at the main UCL campus in Bloomsbury and postgraduate teaching taking place at One Canada Square in Canary Wharf.
We also accept affiliate students from departments across UCL who are interested in taking one or two modules with us.
Undergraduate affiliate students are typically in their third/junior year of study and are treated as third year students at UCL. In the past students have returned to take up places on MSc programmes offered by the UCL School of Management.
Affiliate students joining UCL School of Management should be interested in the following:
- Learning about basic management functions and their practical application
