The UCL Spirit UCL was established in 1826 in order to open up education in England –it was founded on a radical and liberal tradition –it was the first university to welcome students of any race, class or religion and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. The bold, radical and responsive spirit of its foundation continues today amongst UCL’s 22,000 students and 8,000 staff. They: –recognise that universities have a central role in changing the world –work across the disciplines –take a global view in dealing with society’s problems –are committed to enriching society.
Academic Powerhouse UCL is a modern outward-looking institution, engaged with the world’s problems. One of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities: –4th in the world in the Times Higher Education-QS rankings –21 Nobel prize winners amongst past and present members –Number one for research in London and third in the UK overall
