UCL (University College London) is London's leading multidisciplinary university, with 11,000 staff and 35,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was 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.

Today, 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).
