Scholarship Description:

University College London (UCL), founded in London in 1826, is a public research university, the founding college of the University of London Alliance, a founding member of the Russell Group of Universities and the European Research University Alliance. It is also known as one of the “G5 Super Elite Universities”.

University College London was founded on 11 February 1826, originally as London University. Given that the only two universities in England at the time – Oxford and Cambridge – were strictly ecclesiastical, University College London was intended to be a secular alternative to universities of a religious nature. From the outset, University College London was founded and developed as a comprehensive university, rather than as a mere college or research institution.

In 2021-22, UCL was ranked 8th in the QS World University Rankings, 16th in the U.S. News World University Rankings, 16th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and 17th in the Soft Science World University Academic Rankings.
