Why UCL?

Our academic specialisms cover most subjects, from the arts to the sciences, and our innovative focus on interdisciplinary study to examine global issues sets us apart.

Based in the heart of London, UCL is a world-leading university. Our academic excellence, and location in one of the world’s most dynamic capital cities, give you unrivalled personal, social and academic benefits which will enhance any CV or résumé. 

London’s Global University

UCL has a global reach and a global vision. We currently welcome students from over 150 different countries, and recognise and celebrate the diversity and different viewpoints that our students bring. Our academic staff, drawn from around 100 different countries, are similarly diverse.

Global outlook, global issues

The modules on offer give a flavour of UCL’s ethos and academic expertise. Our aim is to make “global citizens” of all our students, and we invite you to think about issues affecting the entire world. We also aim to take your learning beyond the classroom through excursions and field trips. London is uniquely rich in architecture, history, culture and commerce, providing countless case studies for students of every discipline.
