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
International prestige/reputation as one of the best universities in the world. Incredibly well connected and draws some excellent minds to the university. Have met a wide range of people from various backgrounds. This is probably the university’s biggest advantageView more
UCL Medical School is a lovely and welcoming faculty to be in at UCL. The staff are so receptive and willing to help students out – no matter what team (be it the student support team, the admin team, module leads etc). Sure, it gets things wrong sometimes but the medical school are so willing to receive and act on feedback, so you can be sure your voice will be heard.
The medical school has its only students association too which is ran by students for students. Expect lots of social events to help you feel welcome at uni and to help you celebrate academic milestones!
Overall, I would recommend the UCL medical school to any prospective student unreservedly.View more
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
I loved this university due the location and student life. There are countless societies to choose from. Careers events are amazing and there are many of them. There are so many students, and such a wide diversity among them.View 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

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
