UCL University College London
UCL is one of the world’s leading universities, founded in London to open up education to all on equal terms. Today our outstanding research and innovative teaching drive entrepreneurial solutions to the world’s major problems. UCL was founded in 1826 to open up university education in England to those who had been excluded from it. In 1878, it became the first university in England to admit women students on equal terms with men. Academic excellence and conducting research that addresses real-world problems inform our ethos to this day and our plans for the future. Research links: With dedication and a creative approach, UCL research is helping to address the world’s most urgent problems. Designing healthier cities, or grappling with issues such as global health or climate change, the challenges of daily life inspire UCL students and academics. UCL Public Policy brings academic expertise to bear on pressing public policy challenges, while UCL Enterprise works to maximise the impact of our research through training, business partnerships and commercialisation. Cross-disciplinary – UCL brings together world-renowned experts, from across the academic spectrum, to tackle complex problems presented by an increasingly interconnected world, i.e. The UCL Energy Institute harnesses different perspectives and knowledge in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. The UCL Cancer Institute unites cancer research at UCL and our partner hospitals. It provides expertise, facilities and services to a large array of research groups housed under one roof.
