UCL Global


UCL and Europe

With more than 2,000 European collaborative partners, 3,000 European staff and 6,000 European students, by any measure, UCL’s connections to our continent are as numerous as they are impactful.

As a top 10 global university, UCL is one of the world’s outstanding centres for research, teaching and expertise on Europe, across disciplines. We are home to a diverse community of European staff, students and alumni – one of the highest proportions of any UK higher education institution. UCL’s academics also have an outstanding track record in collaborative research with European partners and securing EU research funding.
