So it’s vital that we provide those users with an online experience of UCL that reflects the outstanding qualities of UCL in terms of academic excellence, ground-breaking research and amazing facilities. That way they will want to apply to be a student or a member of staff, to fund research, or work with UCL which, in turn, will help to build and enhance UCL as an institution.
