UCL and London share a great strength – the diversity of people, activity and ideas. We attract staff and students from all over the world and their different perspectives combine to create a rich and productive community. Our students develop cultural fluency and a global perspective that are prized by employers. Many of our students take up the opportunity to study abroad, which develops these characteristics even further.
UCL has exchange agreements with over 250 institutions in 40 countries across five continents.
We have students from more than 150 countries.
Around 41% of our students come from outside the UK.
"Over the last year I've met some incredible people from all over the globe. It's deeply enriching on a cultural level to meet a diverse pool of people, some of whom have entirely different world views in a safe space where we can engage in profound conversations and debates."
