UCL in Africa and the Middle East
From world-leading research projects to scholarship programmes for some
of the area's most talented individuals, Africa and the Middle East
have long been important regions for UCL.
More than 450 students from African countries and 650 from Middle Eastern countries are currently studying with us.
We have many active partnerships and collaborations with institutions and organisations across these areas.
in 2013, UCL’s Africa and Middle East network is open to academic and
professional services staff and postgraduate students from departments
across UCL interested in the region.
Led by Professor Ijeoma Uchegbu, Pro-Vice-Provost (Africa and the Middle East), the network meets regularly throughout the year to discuss current and future activity.
