Why Study at UCL?


UCL Main Quad

UCL was the first university in England to admit students of all religious faiths and social backgrounds.

It has a tradition as an inclusive, innovative, and radical institution. It is currently ranked in the top ten of the world’s universities.

The University is located in Bloomsbury, a short walk away from a host of remarkable resources, including the British Library, the British Museum, the British Film Institute, the Wellcome Trust, the Institute of Historical Research, the Institut Francais, as well as other similar research and cultural centres.

Brussels and Paris are less than three hours away from London, allowing quick and easy access to the heart of mainland Europe.

London, and UCL as London’s global university, is a remarkable place to study the diverse cultures of the world.
