UCL's new Provost Professor Arthur described a different approach for the future "where we give rather than take from our overseas interests".


Professor Arthur, who took over the post from Sir Malcolm Grant last month, said he “acknowledged” that UCL’s model of niche subject, research- intensive postgraduate campuses, such as UCL Qatar, had “to a degree been successful”.

But he described a different approach for the future, which would have a unifying theme consistent with UCL’s “history and values” and where “we give rather than take from our overseas interests”, in particular working with partners in the “global South”.
