University College London

The Fulbright University College London Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the institution.

UCL (University College London) is London's leading multidisciplinary university, with approximately 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries.

Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.

The founding principles of accessibility and liberalism have encouraged the university to champion innovation, diversity and relevance to society, positioning UCL at the forefront of education and research.

Today, UCL is the top university in the UK for research strength (REF 2014) and committed to real impact on a global stage. It is the largest graduate student population in the UK and has the highest number of professors of a UK institution, and is currently ranked 7th in the QS World University Rankings. There are currently 29 Nobel prize winners amongst UCL’s alumni and former staff, including most recently for Professor John O’Keefe in 2014.
