Program Description:

Arcadia - UCL Web Banner
A prestigious history at one of the world's top universities

University College London, (UCL) was the first university to be founded in London, the first to accept women, and the first to accept students regardless of race or religion. It continues to be ranked among the top ten universities in the world, with outstanding academics across all disciplines and departments. UCL’s rigorous coursework means that this program is best if you’re a junior or senior, as you’ll study with highly regarded faculty and researchers in your department of admission. Their tradition of small group teaching means that this is a competitive program; but if admitted, you’ll benefit from the support of a tutor experienced working with visiting students.
 
  • Situated in Central London, in the Bloomsbury area, you’ll be near the staff support at the Arcadia London Center as well as cultural attractions like the British Museum and Regent’s Park.
 
  • UCL is part of the Russell Group which represents 24 leading UK universities committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, and unrivaled links with business and the public sector.
 
  • UCL offers courses in 100 departments across eleven faculties, and its alumni include world leaders, notable inventors, and groundbreaking scientists. A total of 34 Nobel Prize winners have either studied, taught, or researched at UCL.
 
  • When applying to UCL, you’ll be accepted into one or two academic departments and take all of your courses from those departments. This is a competitive program best undertaken by independent students who value academic rigor and self-directed study. 
 
  • You’ll make plenty of friends at the large UCL Students’ Union, where you can join a diverse range of clubs, sports, and societies. The building houses restaurants, pubs, and shops. Students in the performing arts societies perform at the Bloomsbury Theater, UCL’s semi-professional theater. UCL also has several sports facilities open to students. You are also welcome to use Student Central facilities in central London.

NOTE: THERE ARE SEVERAL DEPARTMENTS WITH LIMITED CAPACITY FOR THE 2023-2024 ACADEMIC YEAR. PLEASE CONSULT THE UCL STUDY OPTIONS WEBSITE FOR MORE DETAILS.
