UCL: a window open to the world
Since its foundation in 1425, "openness to the world" has been at the core of the UCL's missions in teaching and research. This means today:
high percentage of international students at UCL: on fifth of our students come from the five continents representing more than 120 nationalities;
many students exchanges, teachers and researchers through European networks (Erasmus programmes) and International networks (Erasmus Mundus, CEMS, TIME, Cluster, etc.), one fourth of UCL graduate students benefit from an experience abroad and UCL welcome as many students through our partnerships;
A volontarist politic of partnerships with Higher Education Institutions from the South AND from more developed countries;
An active participation in many networks in Teaching (CUD, Coimbra, AUF, CINDA, FUCE, FIUC, etc.) as well as in Research (6th European framework, etc.).
The International action of UCL works because of the participation of all members of the university, dynamically coordinated by the Council of the International relations (CRI) with the support of its administration (ADRI ) under the responsability of the Prorector of the International Relations.
