University College London was established in 1826 in order to open up education in England for the first time to students of any race, class or religion. Its founding principles of academic excellence and research aimed at addressing real-world problems, inform the university’s ethos to this day. UCL’s academic structure consists of 10 faculties, each home to world-class research, teaching and learning in a wide-ranging variety of fields. In fact, UCL is London’s largest leading multi-disciplinary university.
