A great university for studying languages

4.0/5
Overall
For studying modern languages, UCL is ideal. You get good language teaching, but more importantly, the literature side of the course gives you a chance to learn under some of the leading academics in their field.

London is also obviously a great place for doing languages, since it's so easy to find cultural events and native speakers with whom you can practice speaking. On top of this studying in such a big city makes it easy to find an interesting part-time job, helping you earn money on the side, and gain useful experience.

The obvious downside of UCL is the cost of living in London, and this is why so many people here get part-time jobs- if you don't want to live in a cupboard size room, the London isn't for you.

Overall
Personal recommendation
I'd definitely recommend the University College London based upon student life, location, activities, etc. to everyone. However, as far as academics are concerned, I only really know about the Slade School of Art and its courses.

Overall
Personal recommendation
Very strongly. It is a great campus, not too crowded (the last time I was there), nice library, lots of space, and all major buildings are in the same area. Plus, UCL is close to all the ULU facilities...ie the library, the gym, the store, bars.
