University College London (UCL) was established in 1826 as London University and was the first university in England to welcome students of any religion, and to welcome women to university education. It was also the 1st university in England to teach English, German, Chemistry, Engineering. It 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
UCL offered a multitude of opportunities in the extracurricular arena. This varied from academic, cultural societies to altruistic and sports clubs. The structure of the year is as such that everyone is allowed to access free taster events, be it for the gym, kickboxing, yoga or so on. Later in the year, everyone has the opportunity to run for a democratic election to lead a student club, giving everyone a chance fo get involved in committee regardless of their background and demographic.
In terms of study space, more needs to be done to ensure adequate seating, silent rooms, cleanliness measures in toilets and make more kitchenettes accessible. For a university with 42000 students, further investment in the aforementioned slant is worthwhile.
Overall, I found myself growing as an individual and not just as a student, thanks to my faculty support.View more

Good university in central London that offers a great variety of degrees and has excellent academics. It also helps with future prospects and prepares the students for professional life. It has a lot of clubs.View more
Ucl is a good university in the heart of London. The accommodation is typically respectable but quite expensive. It is hard to actually connect with lecturers due to ucl being so massive. The night life in London has and will remain to be the best in the world.View more
Especially for international students, high ranked universities seem very attractive and UCL satisfies that. Many renowned professors around campus as well! However, student satisfaction on lectures and campus life could be lower than what it looked from outside. Location of the campus is more than perfect for enjoying the heart of London.View more
The students at this university are lovely and the societies available are a great chance to meet new people. The coursework is challenging and the standard of teaching is not consistent so it can make coursework even more difficult particularly the coding coursework especially when some are harshly marked. The group projects are quite varied and are mostly interesting. The careers team are brilliant and organise a lot of networking events as well as CV clinics which is helpful and beneficial.View more
UCL is a great university that offers a wide range of student societies and employment opportunities. It appears to me that students enjoy good career prospects and employers actively seek to employ UCL students. Professors are usually passionate about their subjects although learning is relatively independent. Facilities are generally adequate although library spaces can be difficult to find during peak hours. Student life is decent with UCL’s own student bars, although much of the appeal comes from London itself. Location is central enough to easily visit London’s hotspots but also not too central so that private accommodation remains accessible. One thing I would criticise is the insufficient UCL accommodation for first-year students, meaning this can be a barrier to socialising for some.View more

I love UCL, I would say though administration can be a bit questionable at times. Excellent teaching, you get what you pay for. I would love to study here for the rest of my life. I will miss it a lot when I leave.View more
Overall great uni and happy to be here. Campus is great, there’s a good range of people and seems like there’s something for everyone. I feel like sometimes some lecturers care way more than others but I guess that’s to be expectedView more
