Start your degree in January

January starts

At UEL we offer a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses starting in January. Many of our part-time, online and distance learning courses also feature January intakes. 

While most university courses start in September, we offer January intakes to give you the chance to study exactly the same course on a different timescale. You'll start in January but catch-up with your classmates for the start of the second year, finishing the degree at the same time as September starters. This means that you'll be studying with us throughout the summer period.

It's a great opportunity if you've missed the September deadline or if you want to study a degree in a shorter time. 

January starts are also available to EU and International students.

Please see available January courses below.

By taking this course you will be fully enrolled as a UEL student, giving you the benefit of on-campus accommodation and access to all University facilities and services. After completing the course, you will then be able to progress seamlessly to full degree-level study without having to apply for a new visa.
