UCL is an international organization that makes you feel welcome. It defines itself as a global university, and it is.
Courses and instructors are usually very well prepared and students are open to discussion.
University services such as the library and career office are very convenient and readily available.
When it comes to student life, the university itself and the student union offer a wide range of activities, as well as exciting life in London with events all year round.
The research cluster I have chosen belongs to a branch of new materials research. It is a completely new field. It has developed considerably so far, but still needs a lot of research. When I was working on this project, I felt a certain amount of difficulty. It requires a lot of research and practice. We have to constantly develop and update our progress, so this makes for a very fulfilling project. We also encounter a lot of difficulties in our research, which is a necessary process for us to study the field of architecture.View more
I had a wonderful experience here. The social life is also excellent as many of the students here are quite studious and focused on their degrees. The choice of extracurricular activities is extensive, with hundreds of societies to join, as well as diving, rock climbing and other activities. However, this year has been a challenging time due to the virus. Of course, architecture majors can only participate in one club at most, because they are really busy. But the teacher will still support us to join some clubs because it can also bring a lot of inspiration to our design. So overall, studying at UCL can be a very interesting and fun-filled university life.View more
Graduate life is very interesting, but it is like a small society. As a fresh graduate from a Chinese undergraduate university, I found myself surrounded by many international students who were much older than me. The oldest are 7 or 8 years older than me, have more than 5 years of work experience, and it can be said that they are academic in their field. The youngest is also one year older than me, that is, after a year, they all have relevant work experience before they come to graduate courses. I have to say that Chinese students are coming, because our postgraduate Chinese students are the youngest group. So most of them don’t go to events and clubs, they’re all super shy.View more
I think the school infrastructure is very good. But we should hold more cross-major communication activities because we don’t have many opportunities to communicate with students from other majors. Hold more activities so that we can broaden our knowledge and make friends.View more
Professors and lecturers prepare well for each session in courses. Moodle is a really good system to use and I am able to download all the resources I need for my study, which is so convenient for us students.View more
Our school has a hybrid approach to offline tuition, and students have a choice. At the same time, due to the lack of space in our school itself, offline learning is efficient and has a good sense of atmosphere, but it is also too crowded. When different groups of students are having discussions, they can affect each other and interfere with independent study.View more
