UCL is made up of four Schools; each School is then split into Faculties which are further divided into Institutes and Divisions (or departments).
UCL Medical School is part of the School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS), the largest of UCL’s Schools, which is a major biomedical research centre and a leader in medical and health research (ranked number 1 in the UK for medical research - REF 2014).

- Faculty of Brian Sciences
- Faculty of Life Sciences

- Faculty of Population and Health Sciences
