Rated by both The Times and The Guardian as the best information school in the UK, the fact that Information Studies offers a high quality teaching environment should come as no surprise. This is all because of our dedicated, professional staff - many of whom are the best selling authors of the standard textbooks that are compulsory reading; small class sizes; the high quality of our students; and our highly personal and caring culture.

We largely teach at the postgraduate level and offer probably the widest range of information disciplines in the country, covering the fields of Librarianship, Information Science, Archives, Records Management, Digital Humanities and Publishing. By offering such a wide range of fields we not only provide wide professional choice but also, via options etc, the important context in which to study the individual information discipline of your choice. Whatever the field chosen, our prime objective is to provide students with professionally relevant skills and skills which prepare them to function at the very highest managerial level.

We also teach on the Information Management for Business (IMB) BSc at the undergraduate level and here too we aim to help turn out students who will be tomorrow's industry leaders. The IMB degree is characterised by its interdisciplinarity, representing as it does the collaborative efforts of three top-class UCL departments - Management Science & Innovation (the degree's home department), Information Studies, and Computer Science.
