Every summer, UCL welcomes students from around the world to study for credit in the heart of London. Watch the video below to see what this year’s students thought of the programme.
With a wide range of modules on offer from many of our
renowned academic departments, you can choose the subject best suited to your academic

Modules are taught on the Bloomsbury campus and include lectures, seminars, group work as well as excursions and field trips to areas of interest in and around London.
