School Description

UCL was founded in 1826 on the premise of making higher education inclusive to those who had up until then been excluded from it. It went on to become the first university in England to admit women students on equal terms with men in 1878.

Twenty-nine Nobel Prizes have been awarded to UCL students and academics, past and present. The most recent addition (in 2014), is John O'Keefe (Medicine). UCL has also been awarded six Athena SWAN awards (fourteen of which are silver) and the Equality Challenge Unit has also awarded the university a Race Equality Charter bronze award.

            1990-1994, BA Hons

            UCL in the heart of London is a tremendous learning environment, in my case the German department proved to be everything the prospectus promised top rated academics, a well managed curriculum and support network and a fun and challenging social programme. London is an expensive place to be but in terms of education, UCL is a top environment in one of the world's greatest cities.
