UCL Open Days


UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences

UCL Population Health Sciences unites seven institutes whose common aim is to innovate to improve health worldwide. We study the patterns of health and disease across societies, and act to protect, promote and improve people's health across the life course. We are proud that UCL is currently ranked 7th in the world for public health.

Our health is shaped by a convergence of factors: our genes, the air we breathe, the food we eat, the work we do, the taxes we pay, the places we live, and the people we know. All influence our physical and mental wellbeing.

Our goal is to produce outstanding graduates equipped to promote improvements in health worldwide. Encompassing institutes in women’s health, child health, global health and cardiovascular sciences, as well as in epidemiology and health care, clinical trials, and health informatics, the faculty has created an exciting and cross-disciplinary environment for the study of population health across the life-course.

As a result, we offer a wide range of programmes, designed and taught by world-leading researchers and practitioners. These cover all areas of population health from clinical trials to epidemiology and global health.

If you are motivated to improve health outcomes there are many paths to doing this and many skills needed - we encourage you to join us and be part of the effort.
