Academic Units of UCL

Academic Services contact for initial enquiries - Nick McGhee (n.mcghee@ucl.ac.uk)

UCL’s research and teaching is organised within a network of faculties and academic departments. Faculties and academic departments are formally established by Council, the governing body of UCL, on the advice of Academic Board, which is UCL’s senior academic authority. These formally established academic units are listed below. Information about other, less formal academic groupings can be found at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/research/academic-structure and also http://www.ucl.ac.uk/departments/academic-departments/.

There is a procedure note for faculties proposing restructuring or renaming of formally established academic units.

A schedule of the heads of these academic units may be found here.
