University College London
University College London is London's leading multidisciplinary university. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, it was the first university in England to welcome students of any religion and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
UCL offers several different types of study programme, from one-year foundation courses to four year research degrees. Foundation courses are pre-undergraduate programmes designed for students who do not have the qualifications necessary for direct entry to an undergraduate degree. The programme typically lasts one year and students who are successful in completing the course can progress to a suitable degree programme either at UCL or another institution. Undergraduate degrees are usually three years in duration and focus on one specific subject. Some degrees have the option to study a subject more in-depth at undergraduate level. Graduate taught programmes can provide students with the necessary skills either for a professional career or to undertake further research in their subject.
The College main campus is in Bloomsbury, London, with the main Quad on Gower Street. It is building a new campus at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to form part of a wider education and cultural quarter.
