UCL key messages

UCL key messages

UCL has developed six key messages designed to help you talk about the university.

Encapsulating life at UCL is near impossible but we've decided on these as areas of strength and aspiration. We developed these messages for the principal themes of UCL 2034 by consulting as widely as possible with UCL staff.

You can complement these with key facts and figures about UCL. 

Click on each of the messages below and you will be taken to resources, images and links related to the message. 

We have also created a Powerpoint presentation encompassing facts about UCL and all six messages for you to download:
