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.View more
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.View more
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.
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.View more
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.View more
UCL is an amazing university with great facilities and professors. The campus is very well designed and we students have loads of study spaces to choose from! The cafés around campus are very affordable and offer great food and drinks.View more
UCL really gives you the means and the space to discover who you are as a person- wide range of societies, central location, diverse faculty and student body… I’ve grown so much as an individual in my 2 years, and feel especially that studying abroad allows for a unique opportunity for growth.View more
What I enjoy in this university is how open to the world it is. When looking at universities, I focused on how globalised they were because I was eager to learn as much from interacting with my course mates/friends than from attending lectures.View more
UCL is a big uni, which can make it difficult to integrate sometimes. However, they are an incredible amount of societies and social activities which makes it easy to meet people and socialize, so you never feel to alone. Plus, student accomodations are a great plus if you cant to meet people.__Concerning the classes, I do feel like they were less intellectually stimulating that I was excepting, probably because I only have 1 or 2 hours maximum per week for a module, which makes it hard to really explore the subject in depth.__However, UCL gives you a great freedom concerning the modules you take and if your degree is essay-based, you are generally free to orientate your work/ your research as you please.__Overall, the amount of work is significant, but there is still plenty of time to work alongside uni or to explore one’s passions/ interests. __I’m not sure if UCL is worth the price or its reputation, but it has definetely been an enjoyable experience for me!View more
UCL provides excellent access to Professors that are leading experts in their field. Furthermore, the international nature of UCL is highly valuable becomes it means I am constantly exposed to new languages, cultures and ideas.View more
