    Three worlds, same degree

    PPE is in my experience a very challenging programme that encompasses aspects from all three disciplines of Philosophy Politics and Economics in as much measure and detail as you choose for yourself in the first year. You must specialise quite early during the programme compared to other universities, but along with it, it covers each subject matter in greater detail than you might expect. If choosing to go for the Q-step stream, ready yourself to spend a significant part of your week learning to code and working with statistics. If you enjoy politics and like approaching political questions from either a philosophical or economic point of view (but not both) I recommend PPE at UCL.

    Amazing academic and social environment

    In my opinion UCL is the perfect environment for young people to prepare for their future careers. Very good programs and courses, incredible teachers and overall a vibrant, diverse social space to develop their passions and meet interesting people. UCL has the extra advantage of being located in central London, thus providing students with even more work and social opportunities to explore.

    Amazing societies and lecturers but poor student support services

    I have really enjoyed my time so far at this university both in terms of classes and student/social life. I would recommend it to all. However, I think some of the student support services are slow and some are even unhelpful

    Multidisciplinarity, diversity overall

    If you are reading this, this means that you want to know if this university is a good fit for you. Know that diversity at UCL isn’t stopping at simple ethnic multiculturalism, but also expanding to the diversity of thoughts and interests, all bright minds gathered at the same place (actually there are still some dumbass, but this is characteristic to our planet, you will find them everywhere). What I mean is that it is up to you to find the ones that are alike to you, the ones that will stimulate you, the ones you want to share your life with.

    Academically, again, UCL is promoting diversity. Multidisciplinarity is part and parcel of all degrees. Indeed, even if you are taking a single honours degree, you will be able to take electives from a totally different field from what you are studying.

    I would say that when applying to UCL, you need to bear in mind the power in your hands that you have. And this institution will unlock this potential that you have at its utmost, if you wish to and realise it.

    UCL

    I believe that attending UCL really allows one to meet driven, inspiring and passionate people. As such, attending UCL can be very rewarding.
    Besides this, UCL encourages students to join various societies meaning that your time at UCL does not solely revolve around academics.

    Great teaching

    The best thing about UCL is the quality of the lectures in their independent field of research. I also like the international element of the uni. It also has a great location, as whilst it is not a campus uni it still has a student bubble feel.

    good modules; bad administration

    From the beginning of my time at UCL the administration has been poor – slow replies to emails and information was not clear e.g. not clear how to register modules and what the specific module title was, making it impossible for me to register it. Despite this, when I began my degree I found the class sizes to be good (small) and the modules, interesting. The lecturers seem interested in their fields of research, however, sometimes they haven’t found a balance between being both an academic and a teacher with unhelpful seminar structures and feedback. The UCL campus is nice and all classes have been easy to get to, however, some of the rooms have not been appropriate – too small for the number of people. I do find it slightly ridiculous that I’m paying £3,000 (with others paying a lot more) just to sit exams in third term with no additional teaching. There are a wide number of societies which is good.

    A University proud of its diversity

    I love the fact that this university is so international! We can find a huge diversity and meet people from different cultures, with different opinions, religions, ideas, interests, knowledge, etc… and this diversity is very encouraged by UCL, everyone can feel welcomed!

    Diversity

    I love the location in the heart of London. The diversity of people is amazing and the courses are very interesting. I would also recommend this uni because of the great sense of community you feel when you’re a student at UCL.
