UCL (University College London) is London's leading multidisciplinary university. Founded in 1826, we were the first university in England to welcome students of any class, race or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
UCL is a truly international community: more than one-third of our students – nearly 27,000 strong – come from 150 countries and nearly one-third of staff are from outside the UK. Though our main campus is located in the heart of London, we also have satellite campuses in Australia and Qatar.
We are consistently ranked among the world's top universities. Our excellence extends across all academic disciplines, from one of Europe's largest and most productive centres for biomedical science to world-renowned centres for architecture (UCL Bartlett) and fine art (UCL Slade School).
