If you would have to choose, what it would be: a university that fully embraces diversity or a university that is renowned but less flexible when it comes to mixing nationalities? Of course, it depends on which side you are situated. However, there are places such as University College London (UCL) where your decision, in terms of furthering your education, is not limited by geographical, economic, political, and religious factors. Did you know that UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any religion and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men?
Now that you know you will be greeted and welcomed as an international student, you might want to take a peek into its history of teaching. UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries. The university was founded in 1826 in the heart of London and since then it became an “academic home” for brilliant minds.
