Study Abroad at UCL
UCL has a very well-established study abroad programme, with over 1,000 students every year joining us from most parts of the world including the USA, Canada and Latin America, Japan, China and Hong Kong, Australia and all over Europe.
We try to ensure that our study abroad students benefit from a fully integrated experience at UCL, so you’ll take classes alongside our regular degree students, share the same course loads and lectures, and have access to the support and facilities that are available to UCL students. Students who join us for a term or longer automatically become part of the UCL Alumni community.
