Studying at UCL

UCL is a world-leading university, consistently appearing in the top 10 in the QS World University Rankings. 

It is one of the top two universities in the UK for number of professors, which means that our students are taught by the most highly qualified experts in their field (Higher Education Statistics Agency 2011). It also has the best academic to student ratio in the UK (1:10), enabling small class sizes and outstanding individual support (Times 2013).

UCL provides an environment that encourages students to be ambitious - to want to change the world for the better. In 2011–2012 alone, UCL supported the creation of 34 new student businesses, and nearly half all students volunteered on community projects. 

Based in the heart of one of the world's great cities, it offers an unrivalled student experience. Above all, when it comes to entering the careers market, London graduates start with a real advantage, with so many of the country’s leading employers in the worlds of law, finance, business, media and communications on their doorstep.

What our students say

I was drawn to the dynamic and cosmopolitan ethos of UCL, as well as its reputation for being a leading global academic institution. The MSc Clinical and Public Health Nutrition has been excellent in both the breadth and depth of topics it covers and has given me a  strong foundation in evidence-based nutritional science. Lectures are given by world-class experts and one of the highlights of the course is the opportunity for individual research. The careers support is brilliant and I've been fortunate to meet with healthcare, industry and pharmaceutical professionals, including from Abbott Nutrition. With support always available from friendly course tutors and a tight-knit community of fellow students, UCL has been a fantastic and truly unique place to study." 

Sabrina Neilson, MSc Clinical and Public Health Nutrition   

"I found that all the tutors and staff were dedicated to help us achieve and strongly suggest this course to anyone interested in understanding the drug industry and gaining hands on research experience."
