"Teaching is a key reason for being an academic - encounters with inquiring, intelligent students keep you fresh."

London's global university

UCL's staff and students come from all over the globe, and meeting the teaching and learning needs of this international community requires a special educational approach.

UCL has devised a unique concept of education for global citizenship to equip its graduates for their future working lives. Degree courses aim to give students an international and multidimensional perspective on their subjects, whether they are philosophers or pharmacologists, fine artists or anatomists, so that they leave UCL as creative, critical thinkers.

The university is working with all teaching departments to internationalise the curriculum as part of this global dynamic, to bring an intercultural dimension to each subject area.

And to reach across the globe to more international students, UCL has opened campuses in Australia and Qatar and staff are teaching at Kazakhstan's New University of Astanaruns. Find out more about where and how UCL is working overseas.
