    UCL's School of Public Policy and NYU Wagner have created a unique partnership to offer the first truly joint degree designed for international civil servants. The robust blend of theoretical and applied policy analysis and management studies is intended to provide a distinctive edge enabling public service leaders to function with many actors in a global environment to devise and implement strategies for change.

    Students will spend the first semester at NYU Wagner in New York City, the Spring Term at UCL and the summer in locations across the globe working on a client-based Capstone project. Core modules bridge cutting-edge concepts and skills in policy analysis, management, implementation, and facilitating change. Students will then select from the offerings of both institutions to craft an approach best suited to their specific needs.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 150 credits (equivalent to 30 credits at NYU or 75 ECTS credits).

    The programme consists of four core modules (two at UCL and two at NYU), four optional modules (two at UCL and two at NYU) and a Capstone project.

    Capstone Project

    All students undertake a Capstone group project which allows them to expand on their own experiences, knowledge and skills acquired through the programme to deliver a concrete task for a public services organisation. The project can be conducted at an international organisation in the EU or USA.

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, presentations and educational visits e.g. the British Library. Assesment is through examinations, essays and the Capstone group project.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
