University College London


UCL is London’s global university - a research and teaching powerhouse in the heart of one of the most dynamic cities in the world.  Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body of 12,000 undergraduates and 8,000 postgraduates.

Founded in 1826, UCL was the first English university established after Oxford and Cambridge, the first to admit students regardless of race, class, religion or gender, and the first to provide systematic teaching of law, architecture and medicine. Its excellence extends across all academic disciplines; from one of Europe’s largest and most productive centres for biomedical science interacting with eleven leading London hospitals, to world-renowned centres for architecture (UCL Bartlett) and fine art (UCL Slade School).
