UCL in South East Asia and Australasia

South East Asia and Australasia’s rich geographic and cultural diversity is reflected in UCL’s extensive engagement in the region. From tackling neurodegeneration in Singapore to improving urban transport in Thailand, UCL delivers impact in the region in a multitude of ways.
Given the strength of UCL’s institutional partnerships, complemented by an active network of academics working with partners across South East Asia and Australasia, UCL is well positioned to have a positive impact in the region in the coming years.
