INTRODUCTION TO UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
University College London (UCL) is one of the foremost teaching and research institutions in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1826 to provide higher education for all that could benefit from it, regardless of religion, race or class, and is both the oldest and the largest of the various colleges and institutes that make up the University of London. The College was the first to admit women to higher education on equal terms with men, and also pioneered the teaching of many subjects at university level.
UCL has over 19,000 students, of whom approximately one third are graduate students. There are 70 different departments within the College in the following eight faculties; Arts, Social and Historical Sciences, Laws, the Built Environment, Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Life Sciences and Biomedical Sciences.
UCL is proud of its record of academic distinction; it can count 19 Nobel Prize winners among former academic staff and students, and the current academic staff includes 22 Fellows of the Royal Society, 10 of the Royal Academy of Engineering and 16 of the British Academy. Recent external assessments have confirmed UCL as one of the top research universities in Britain.
The College seeks to provide for all aspects of student life. Facilities situated within the UCL precinct and available for the use of all students include libraries, a Health Centre, computer facilities, a Language Centre, the Bloomsbury Theatre and a Fitness Centre. The UCL Student’s Union provides a range of services such as bars, snack-bars, shops, a hairdresser and a travel office, as well as running over 130 clubs and societies catering for a range of sporting, academic, musical and cultural interests. UCL students may also use the facilities of the nearby University of London Union, which include a large swimming pool.
Situated on a compact site in the centre of London, UCL has extensive student accommodation available within easy reach. Nearby are libraries, museums, a university bookshop, public gardens and many cinemas, theatres, cafes, bars and inexpensive restaurants.
