Partnerships and collaborations
Agreements with other universities and institutions
UCL has hundreds of agreements (Memoranda of Understanding) with leading universities and institutions around the world. These agreements range from student exchanges and internships to research collaborations with business and industry.
UCL was the first university to commit to being a strategic partner of Nazarbayev University (NU) which is pioneering a completely new approach to higher education in Kazakhstan.
As the international partner of the university’s School of Engineering, UCL supports the development of all of its undergraduate engineering programmes. UCL also delivers its University Preparatory Certificate at NU’s Centre for Preparatory Studies (CPS).
UCL began its partnership with Santander Universities in 2007 and was one of the very first UK universities to become a member of the Santander Universities network.
The partnership provides UCL students and staff with numerous benefits and opportunities which range from study abroad experiences to awards for non-academic achievement.
In 2009 UCL embarked on
a multidisciplinary, transatlantic research, education and clinical
collaboration with Yale University and Yale-New Haven Hospital.
This faculty-led initiative originated in cardiovascular medicine and has subsequently expanded to other biomedical fields and other disciplines, including engineering, history, philosophy, and law.
