UCL's international strategy

24 January 2005

UCL has an ambitious agenda to ensure that its students are capable of helping those in need around the world, and to provide an education that ensures that its students become global citizens.

Professor Michael Worton

Speaking to the Independent, Professor Michael Worton, Vice-Provost of UCL (Academic & International), described the university's intent to transform itself into a global university.

The article quotes from UCL's new International Strategy: "As a result of a combination of globalisation, the development of new technologies and, in the UK, the shift from an elite to a mass higher education system, higher education is undergoing what amounts to a revolution. It is important for UCL to recognise the magnitude of what is happening and to embrace the opportunity to change itself radically."
