UCL has a number of institutes and departments that prioritise global health and its determinants
Institute for Global Health
The UCL Institute for Global Health changes lives across the world. We work in the real world, collaborating with communities at all levels, and offering workable solutions for policy makers. As an Institute we implement a cross disciplinary initiative to provide innovative, workable solutions to global health problems which is reflected throughout our research and teaching. Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to our approach to research, teaching and beyond.
UCL Health of the Public
UCL Health of the Public brings multiple disciplines together to improve health for all, taking forward ideas presented in the Academy of Medical Sciences report Improving the Health of the Public by 2040.
Our physical and mental health is shaped by a multitude of factors, from the food we eat, to the air we breathe, the work we do, the places we live, the taxes we pay, the health care we receive, and the people around us. We aim to develop new research communities and collaborations across many fields, including engineering, climate science, the built environment, law and social sciences, alongside population health sciences. This will encourage innovative perspectives in our research and education, and create a new cadre of researchers and students with skills that transcend disciplines.
By working together with multiple disciplines, and in collaboration with local communities, local government, the NHS, the third sector, and industry, we hope to have a real impact and ensure a healthy future for all.
Institute of Education, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society
We work across education, culture, psychology and social science to create lasting and evolving change. Our close partnerships, ranging from government ministries to individual schools, mean we are uniquely placed to inform policy and practice. With over 300 research academics, we embrace every aspect of education, from curriculum to EdTech, and social science. At the forefront of teaching and research in education, culture, psychology and social science, IOE is home to 6 academic departments and over 30 centres.
