Message from the Vice-Provost (Education)

Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education)

When UCL was founded in 1826 it was on the principles of innovation and excellence in teaching, learning and research and equality of access on merit to those who had hitherto not had the opportunity to study at university.

More than 180 years later, those founding principles remain true. As London’s global university, we welcome scholars and students from more than 150 countries to our campus in Bloomsbury and now UCL is extending its reach with specialist campuses in Australia, Qatar and Kazakhstan. Our approach to internationalisation of all curricula ensures that UCL students experience the best education drawn from practice across the globe. Internationalisation of the curriculum is one of the underlying principles of our Education for Global Citizenship agenda. The world is globalising ever more rapidly and we must support our students and graduates for this mobile, fluid, complex, and often challenging landscape.
