UCL is London’s academic powerhouse, a multi-disciplinary university consistently ranked in the top ten of global university league tables. Established in 1826 in order to open up higher education in the United Kingdom for the first time to students of any race, class or religion, UCL continues to direct its teaching and research into addressing real-world problems. Today students from over 140 countries study at UCL, sharing the common attributes of creativity and critical thinking.
