Postgraduate Study and Research at UCL
UCL was founded in 1826 as a radically different university, opening up English higher education for the first time to people of all beliefs and social backgrounds. Today it is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities.
UCL is consistently ranked in the top range of international university league tables - placed fourth in the 2010 QS World University rankings. Its academic
community includes many fellows of the Royal Society, the British
Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Academy of Medical
Sciences; 21 Nobel prize winners have come from the UCL community.
UCL has an exceptional range of research-based teaching and postgraduate supervision on Europe and the European Union across faculties, disciplines and methodologies. Whether you are interested in European public policy; EU law; European history; European languages, literatures and thought; security and integration studies or comparative business economics in Europe, UCL offers outstanding postgraduate programmes and a lively intellectual environment in which to study and research.
The wide spectrum of taught postgraduate programmes,
based on the scholarship and research expertise of UCL staff, are
designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge across
disciplines, to offer them rigorous training in academic analysis and
equip them with transferable skills.
Much of the energy of UCL life comes from its students, of whom 34% come from outside the UK, attracted from nearly 140 countries around the globe. We provide opportunity and leadership in teaching and research, entrepreneurship, volunteering and overseas study. We admit only excellent students and work with them to develop and excel.
