API at University College London in London

Students looking for a prestigious university to study abroad in London need look no further than University College London (UCL). UCL is a modern, outward-looking institution, committed to engaging with the major issues of the day. It is ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the world, and only admits the highest caliber of students. More than 25 alumni hold Nobel Prizes, and the university has been named the top research university in the U.K. Over 29,000 students from more than 150 countries call UCL home, and UCL has the highest number of professors of any university in the U.K. UCL was the first university in England to admit students of all races, religions, and classes, and the first to give female students equal standing to their male counterparts. UCL was also a pioneer in study abroad, admitting Japanese students as early as 1863!

Students at University College London (UCL) take up to 16 U.S. credits per semester. Much is expected of each student, but equally, much is provided. While UCL values self-motivation and promotes the acquisition of self-directed learning skills, students benefit from an excellent academic infrastructure. There is an emphasis on small-group teaching and UCL enjoys one of the best staff to student ratios in the UK (1:9). In addition to lectures, students benefit from seminars and tutorials and, where appropriate, practical classes. Every study abroad student at UCL is assigned a tutor to ensure that students achieve maximum benefit from lectures and that they develop the necessary study skills to do well in the British academic system.

University College London Summer Program: The UCL Summer School is divided into two sessions, each spanning three weeks. Students may choose to attend for one or two sessions and will study one module per session. Students will be taught by UCL academics in interactive small groups and many modules incorporate class visits and guest speakers to further enhance their learning. With 18 specialist libraries and five permanent collections on campus, and all of London’s museums, galleries and monuments within easy reach, students will have a wealth of resources to support their studies. All UCL Summer School modules aim to incorporate the latest research in each subject area, and many also make use of London as a unique learning resource, taking the learning experience beyond the classroom through excursions and field trips.

HIGHLIGHTS London, an international center of business, fine arts, design, theater, technology, politics and finance, has inspired creativity and cutting-edge innovation for centuries. There is something for everyone in London: a bustling financial district, street markets, green spaces and elaborate parks, ruins, monuments, political machinations, art galleries and museums. Monuments to Britain’s glorious past are found throughout London, including the Tower of London, the Old Royal Observatory in Greenwich, the British Museum, and Trafalgar Square. Because of its famed galleries, the energy of Soho, the history that lives in the streets, the pub scene and the tranquility of London’s parks, London is alive with sources of inspiration.
