Shaping Cities for Health:
Complexity and the planning urban of environments in the 21st century: Report of the UCL–Lancet Commission on Healthy Cities
30th May 2012
UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with 8,000 staff and 22,000 students. Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body. Based in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, race or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. This same radical spirit thrives today, including the desire to respond to our urgent environmental challenges.
In 2009, UCL has continued to improve its position as a world-leading university. UCL is now ranked fourth in the world by the Times Higher-QS World University Rankings, rising from seventh place in 2008, and 21st by Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Academic Rankings of World Universities, rising from 22nd in 2008.
Our excellence extends across all academic disciplines; from one of Europe’s largest and most productive centres for biomedical science interacting with eleven leading London hospitals, to world-renowned centres for architecture (UCL Bartlett) and fine art (UCL Slade School).
Coverage of environmental topics is found in almost all faculties and students interested in current environmental challenges can study these from many different perspectives. For example, there are specialist courses in the Department of Geography, Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering and the School of Planning. However, these are just three examples from the wealth of programmes that are available.
