At the very heart of UCL’s mission is our research. We were rated the top university in the UK for research strength in the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). UCL is 8th in the world, 4th in Europe, 1st in London in the QS World University Rankings 2020. 

We offer over 675 postgraduate taught, research and initial teacher education programmes across a wide range of disciplines, and encourage our community to work across traditional subject boundaries.   

UCL's research-based teaching methodology means that research is integrated into many of our degrees, and students have the opportunity to make an original contribution to their field of study.

To view our range of programmes, or to find information about applying for graduate study, visit www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate.

For nearly two centuries we’ve confronted humanity’s biggest issues, and today we continue our heritage of disruptive thinking. Through our research, many minds at UCL work together to improve lives and communities and create real world impact.
