UCL Study Abroad


Study Abroad Student Experiences

This year we are excited to launch the UCL Study Abroad Blog and Vlog. Twelve UCL students abroad will be blogging their experiences throughout the year, and nine others have been sent GoPros to show us what life is like across the world! From the United States to Hong Kong, from Germany to Australia and from Russia to Ecuador you can read and watch how these students are making the most of their study abroad. For students considering going abroad as part of their degree, this is your chance to gain a glimpse of what opportunities await you. Click on a continent below to see content specific to that region or scroll down the page to see the latest updates from our students. We will be releasing new content every week so check back regularly!
