It is advertised as ‘London’s Global University’ and over a third of its 22,000 students come from outside the UK.

International students can choose from a huge range of courses at UCL, and are offered many opportunities for further international study through strong academic ties to other universities. What’s more, a degree from UCL is highly regarded by both UK and international employers.

Based in the centre of London, UCL students are immersed in a melting pot of cultures, ideas and opportunities. The main UCL buildings are within walking distance of the British Museum, the West End and Oxford Street shopping to name just a few local attractions.
