UCL - a great place for future researchers

I feel like this uni, and the Social Sciences degree in particular is perfect if you imagine your future as a researcher. The degree is very research-based, with a lot of focus on how to conduct studies. However, if doing a PhD and then becoming a researcher is not your ultimate goal, this might not be the ideal degree for you. In my experience, if you imagine yourself in the private sector and not in research, you will need to gain lots of experience outside of your studies doing part-time jobs or volunteering to get a good job. Luckily, in my experience, the workload on this degree is not extremely heavy, so you will able to work and/or enjoy life with just a little bit of time managament and organisation. As for part-time jobs, they are not too hard to find, even the school itself offers some great opportunities. Location-wise, London is one of the most exciting European cities, so you will never be bored. Plus, UCL’s main campus is situated in Bloomsbury, in Central London, quite close to busy and interesting places like Oxford Street, Regents Park or the British Museum. The downside of this are the insane rent prices you will have to pay if you want to live close to uni. The main building of UCL looks great and is equipped with everything you could want, but some of the other buildings (e.g. the IOE, where the Social Sciences degree is based) are not as pleasant. The cafés of UCL are great for cheap and good coffee, but not the best choice for a meal in my experience – even though they are quite cheap, they are not necessarily that delicious and/or filling. As for meeting peers, UCL is very international, so if you want to have friends from all around the world and learn about different cultures, this is the place to go to.
