"Studying in London is a choice I will never regret. The facilities of UCL and the city enable you to fulfill any of your ambitions, be they academic, cultural, social or athletic. I found it easy to get carried away and do all four."

Edd Morgan ~Palaeobiology MSci

 The Palaeobiology degree programme at UCL allowed me to specialise within Earth Sciences to focus on this type of research, which was otherwise more restrictive at other universities.

Harriet Drage ~ Palaeobiology MSci

"I am so glad I made the decision to attend UCL. Living in central London is an experience I feel everyone should experience, and as a student seems the best time in your life."

Rebecca Gale ~ Geology MSci

"The field trips are great fun. You get to spend all you time in nice places by the sea: Dorset, Cornwall, Kent, Norfolk or even go to Italy and Spain! These trips are a good bonding experience."

Michaela Musilova ~ Planetary Science (International Programme) MSci

"The Earth Sciences department offers students a learning environment that is both supportive and flexible. The tutors and lecturers are helpful and knowledgeable, and include some of the leading researchers in the subject."
