UCL Faculty of Social & Historical Sciences
We are one of the world's very best universities, consistently placed in the global top 20 in a wide range of world rankings.
We are a world-leader in research, with outstanding results in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
Intellectually curious students learn best when they experience first-hand the challenges of conducting research - so initiatives like the Connected Curriculum scheme aim to ensure that our students can take an active part in our thriving research culture.
In the heart of London
Our central London location gives our students access not only to the best in entertainment and nightlife, but also to cultural and academic resources. We are close to, and have teaching and research links with, countless hospitals, museums, galleries, libraries and professional bodies.
Our students come from over all over the world and UCL has a friendly and cosmopolitan atmosphere. We work hard to embed a global perspective in all our teaching.
There are plenty of opportunities to study abroad for a term or a year and many of our students spend some time in another country as part of their degree.
