    Welcoming atmosphere in the heart of a bustling city

    As a Master’s student, I already have some experience with several programmes, professors, and management styles I’ve approached in the past. However, it was never the case that I immediately felt as fantastic as I do right now, at UCL. The university area is full of life and joy, but it doesn’t overshadow the most important point of why are we all here – to study. The approachability of libraries, university staff and help centres makes it pleasurably easy and turns our daily student struggles into a pure delight. I would recommend UCL to everyone who wants to experience the best student atmosphere available.

    UCL

    The program is quite helpful for those who want to be teachers in the future. However, some tutors in this program are not very responsible and can’t provide much help. As a result, there is a great discrepancy in the quality of different classes. The facilities in the school are great. There is enough space for us to study or discuss things with partners.

    good TA and professors but...

    Responsible professors, amiable TAs, clear outline of the course schedule, excellent location of the campus.

    The program is not diversified(>90% Chinese international students), not very practical, a total of three weeks of strikes, not enough F2F sessions, assignment requirement is often not clear enough, few career-oriented activities within the program.

    Interesting programme!

    In general, the atmosphere of the classes was very good and the teachers were very nice, so I learned a lot of new things. However, in some courses, there was no presentation, which made the lessons a bit boring and also led to students missing key information. In some classes, students were not very familiar with each other, which made it difficult to move forward with group work.

    Faculty

    Great faculty and super interesting modules. Wish collegiate sports were more like they are in America. Also wish Pakistani literature was a part of the comparative literature and modern languages degrees.

    Great resources and facilities

    UCL is a great place to study literature and languages, not only because of the international cohort, but also the library resources on offer. The modules offered are wide ranging and interesting, and also can be somewhat intellectually challenging. There are also many societies and social events every week, which helps make student life more enjoyable.

    Brilliant English Course

    I can only speak for the English Course of this University but personally I found it very engaging. The first year is broad, which is necessary, although slightly daunting at first, as it sets you up well for the second year. They provide one to one mentors which is encouraging. Most lecturers were engaging, and the module choices for second year are interesting.

    The level of teaching is great, and there are plenty of resources available!

    I really enjoy my university! The teaching is interesting, and the library is well equipped. There are plenty of societies to be involved in, and it is very easy to integrate into uni life! There is also plenty of support available!

    International Students

    Now that I’ve finished a year at UCL, it’s suddenly dawned on me how unsurprising it is that the majority of UCL students are actually international students. It’s unsurprising because of how obvious it is that nearly everyone is from a different country. This is arguably one of the best things about UCL: the opportunity to acquaint oneself with a heterogenous population in a multicultural nexus that is meant to celebrate the intrinsic diversity of London. Before I came, I knew that that statistic was one of UCL’s finest achievements and highlighted its supreme position as a pioneer and champion of diversity. It’s one of the most appealing parts of the university. The problem is that UCL knows this- and manipulates it to further their economic imperative. The reason I say this is because international students are expected to pay ten thousand pounds more than the average British national, a whopping amount of 19,300 pounds (approximately). It is no wonder that UCL is one of the richest universities with its budget being 1.43 billion. Of course, it is London, a metropolitan country, so how could one not expect that there would be a huge influx of international students? Why shouldn’t we pay that amount of money, in addition to extra money for accommodation and bills and groceries? I’ll tell you why: UCL and London itself operate as a business. It neglects to take into account the exchange rates of different countries that make it even more difficult for international students to pay. But we pay, because it’s meant to offer us the best education and means of socio-economic improvement in the long run. Obviously this would mean that international students such as myself are especially privileged to afford to come to schools like UCL, but this does not erode the fact that so many of us would love to have the same opportunity, but are denied due to financial hinderances. UCL thus seeks the wealthiest investors, just as a business would. I do not contest that UCL should decrease the amount of tuition for the sake of international students, but I must point out their true reason for diversity- a rather troubling underbelly of greed.

    Dynamic

    Very energetic place, full of opportunity if you can seek it in London. Humanities lecturers are very inefficient in teaching and you can usually get more productive studying done if you skip classes because of the teaching style and if you learn the lecturer’s assessment preferences you don’t really need to study everything and just tailor your answer to that. London is a big place and as such almost no-one at uni has time to spend on you, if you want something and are mature enough to go out and get it you will succeed if not UCL is not for you.
