UCL Study Abroad


Where Can I Go?

UCL has exchange agreements with over 250 institutions in 40 countries across five continents, including 48 of the world's top 100 universities. Where you can study abroad will depend on your programme of study at UCL.

With the exception of students from ESPS, the SELCS, and students studying certain degree programmes in SSEES, it is not possible to study abroad at a university with which UCL has no formal exchange.


To participate in the Study Abroad programme, your department must have a study abroad component.
