UCL was established in 1826 in order to open up education in England for the first time to students of any race, class or religion. UCL’s founding principles of academic excellence and research aimed at addressing real-world problems continue to inform the university’s ethos to this day. Over 38,000 students from 150 countries study at UCL. Our research extends to the far corners of the globe, and our numerous links and collaborations with leading institutions and organisations help enhance our status as London’s Global University.
UCL in partnership with Qatar Foundation has created UCL Qatar, a centre of excellence where students from Qatar and all over the world receive an education in cultural heritage of the highest quality. Our innovative postgraduate degree programmes are challenging, creative and designed to produce highly skilled and motivated professionals who will become the cultural leaders of tomorrow. Graduates from UCL Qatar have secured high profile roles in the cultural heritage, library and knowledge management sectors – locally, regionally and internationally.
Our campus is located in Education City, Doha – home to a number of the world’s most distinguished academic institutions. At UCL Qatar you will receive a truly global educational experience in the heart of the Gulf.
