UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any religion and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
Their bold vision of “education for all”, brave approach to creating and sharing knowledge and their global outlook have seen UCL rise to become one of the world’s top 10 universities, and these principles remain at the heart of their ambitious 20-year strategy, UCL 2034.
UCL is entering into a hugely exciting phase of their history. The University is investing in a £1.25 billion capital programme, “Transforming UCL”, to enhance and develop their historic Bloomsbury campus to deliver more accessible, innovative and sustainable teaching, learning and study spaces to support the ambition of their academic community. They are also building a new campus, UCL East, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, providing an innovative environment that will contribute to the regeneration of east London.
