UCL (University College London) is a world-leader in research, and one of the world’s very best universities, consistently placed in the global top 20 in a wide range of world rankings.Show more
People that go to UCL tend to be friendly and open and its a great mix of cultures and ethnicities. Unfortunately the university is extremely liberal and so if you are anything else than that expect judgement and criticism.
Moreover, the way UCL is run and managed is laughable at best. Old facilities, very disorganised Student Union and mediocre Support Services.
But as I said its a great place to meet and make friends for life and the University is high in rankings which helps when getting a job.View more
Good overall, but lectures and handout are really bad in Engineering. Moreover, the facilities are not well designed and we are often too many to fit into one classroom. Plus exams are really far from the campus.View more
Perfect balance between studies and student life. Student’s union has a incredible number and variety of societies to join, socialize in, and practice sports. The course in demanding and will require studying, but you will have time to do a lot of other things, or even get a part time job.View more
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 unhelpfulView more
I like how many societies and clubs there are open to whatever interests you
I love the student bars and they put on cool events
I love how many open and amazing ppl i met there
The gym should be way cheaper
Transport in Ldn is the devil – way too expensive, even the supposedly ‘student’ discounts for it are extortionate
I studied languages at UCL 10 years ago so things may have changed by now. At the time, they had a very diverse range of languages to choose from, from romance languages to Slavonic to Nordic to Germanic etc. This opened up many doors and students had the chance to pick up a new language from scratch. There were language modules and modules on culture. However, the more popular languages seemed to have a much wider range of modules to choose from compared to the less popular ones. Teaching quality was mixed- I had both good and bad experience.
UCL is a very international uni with many students from outside the UK, which is really fun! Being in London, students have so much at their disposal in terms of entertainment, night life and leisure- you definitely won’t get bored! However, UCL is not a campus uni so you don’t get the same community feel as you might do elsewhere- this can sometimes make it hard to make friends. London also makes student life expensive.View more
UCL is in a lovely location and is really international meaning you meet fascinating people from all around the world.
It is a world renowned University however I believe the lectures and facilities could be improved significantly.
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.View more
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.View more
One of the best in the world, a beautiful campus in the heart of London which lends itself to a fantastic social scene.
The teaching is thorough, captivating and cultivates a real student to bring the best out of them, with professors and educators that are always available to guide and support.View more
