The Democratic Disconnect

In the eurozone, the EU needs greater legitimacy at the national level not only to secure space for domestic politics but also to secure respect for social and economic commitments over time.

Europe: Six decades of strife and controversy for UK

It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

The 9 November poll in Catalonia

The recent Scottish referendum set a precedent in contemporary Europe by seeking to deliver, in agreement between Westminster and Holyrood, a binding decision on Scotland's future. The 'participatory process' that took place in Catalonia on 9 November could not be more different. Why is this so, what are its consequences, and where might we be heading?

Postgraduate Study and Research at UCL


UCL was founded in 1826 as a radically different university, opening up English higher education for the first time to people of all beliefs and social backgrounds. Today it is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities.

UCL is consistently ranked in the top range of international university league tables - placed fourth in the 2010 QS World University rankings. Its academic community includes many fellows of the Royal Society, the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Academy of Medical Sciences; 21 Nobel prize winners have come from the UCL community.

UCL has an exceptional range of research-based teaching and postgraduate supervision on Europe and the European Union across faculties, disciplines and methodologies. Whether you are interested in European public policy; EU law; European history; European languages, literatures and thought; security and integration studies or comparative business economics in Europe, UCL offers outstanding postgraduate programmes and a lively intellectual environment in which to study and research.

The wide spectrum of taught postgraduate programmes, based on the scholarship and research expertise of UCL staff, are designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge across disciplines, to offer them rigorous training in academic analysis and equip them with transferable skills.

Much of the energy of UCL life comes from its students, of whom 34% come from outside the UK, attracted from nearly 140 countries around the globe. We provide opportunity and leadership in teaching and research, entrepreneurship, volunteering and overseas study. We admit only excellent students and work with them to develop and excel.

This section of the website offers you an overview of postgraduate programmes, as well as of the many facilities and services available for the study of Europe at UCL.
