Great uni in many aspects. The union is useless, both from my experience as a student hearing their political aspirations which reflection a tiny proportion of the student population, and my experience as a society president (for 2 years), in which they gave hardly any aid or at least useful advice, to the extent of outright ignoring certain important requests like room bookings (before it was made automated), mostly because we weren't a sports society.

Studying at University College London

University College London is a prestigious university with links to 26 winners of the Nobel Prize and consistent rankings of 5th in Europe and within the worlds top 20 universities. Students come from around 150 countries to study at UCL to benefit from its famed low staff to student ratio and be part of its legacy. The university is 4th out of all UK universities for career prospects and boasts that its students are more likely to set up businesses post graduation than those from other universities.

Alongside studying, University College London offers a great deal of recreational activities to its students. Among these are over 130 societies, 50 sports clubs and several cafés, shops, bars and places to eat. For those interested in music there are places to practice, perform and enjoy others doing the same in venues such as the Bloomsbury Theatre with the University Opera and Chamber Music Club. 'Rare FM' and 'Cheese Grater Magazine' are both media societies that encourage students to get involved, increase their skills and confidence while informing the university community.

For those interested in sports there is something provided for all levels. Facilities include a gym, outdoor football, rugby, lacrosse and hockey pitches, a 33m swimming pool, fitness centre, exercise classes such as Yoga, Spinning, Aerobics and Circuit Training, two squash courts, martial arts space and a dance studio. Among the 50 sports clubs on offer are horse riding, ice skating, Ultimate Frisbee, Salsa and rowing. Many of the sports clubs use specialised facilities in the local area.

University College London Careers Service organises many events over the year to aid students such as skills workshops, talks by past students who have entered into successful careers, advice and consultations on further study, work placements, studying abroad and internships and at the same time helps match employers to the skilled individuals they are searching for.



UCL works alongside industry names such as Intel and NASA in areas including education and research and is dedicated to being part of the answer to world issues by working with specialist partners, staff and students and going beyond the challenge to realise the answers.

The list of well-known alumni of University College London is impressive and includes names such as Alexander Graham Bell, Ricky Gervais, all members of the band Coldplay, Jonathan Ross, Mahatma Gandhi, Jonathan Dimbleby, Edwin Waterhouse, Raymond Briggs and G. K. Chesterton.

I love UCL. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed, the facilities are good. They need to reduce their rent fees. Its right next to ULU.

UCL is not exactly reknowned for good student welfare...I think many people know that. UCL administration is pretty poor and there were changes to my course (compulsory as well as optional modules available) after the course had started. But at the end of the day it has a good rep and people will still go even if they hear about bad admin and student welfare...

It is not a campus university but most of its facilities are located in one place in central London.
