A great university for studying languages
Tom P
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Language
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.

UCL review
Alexander I
United Kingdom, Graduate
Area, Ethnic, and Cultural Studies
Overall
UCL is definitely an institution in the UK and abroad. During my year my programme ran into quite a few problms due to the relocation of many of the experienced lecturers. I feel that UCL did not have sufficient staff to manage the inmense amount of students that ws fostering at least during that academic year and that resulted into a lot of stress for myself and my peers. Overall, the quality of teaching was great but they definitely needto consider hiring more admin people so things can run smoothly.

Amazing opportunities at UCL.
Sam B
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Economics
Overall
Studying Economics and Business with Eastern European Studies at UCL helped develop skills useful for my professional life. Teachers aren't as good as I imagined but the material studied is very enjoyable. Social life at UCL is amazing, the best you can get from any London University I would say. One piece of advice: get involved in societies and activities, your course is not going to be enough to live uni life at 100%.
