About the institution
University College London is a Russell Group university and was the first English institution to admit men and women on equal terms. Over 40 former members have been awarded Nobel Prizes. Many of its facilities are in Bloomsbury, central London; a number of its student residences are close by. Undergraduates take part in the two-week UCL Global Citizenship Programme after their summer exams, working with students from different subjects on projects relating to issues such as global heath, human wellbeing and sustainable cities.
