UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with a community of approximately 50,000 students and staff. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. We are a research-intensive university and a member of the UK’s Russell Group. We are a diverse community with staff from across the world, and are the only university to hold both a Silver Athena SWAN award and a Race Equality Charter Bronze Award. Join us to transform how the world is understood, how knowledge is created and shared and the way that global problems are solved.
University of Oxford is a cornerstone of British higher education. The venerable university has about 20,000 students (including more than 11,000 undergraduates). Oxford also is home to 38 colleges, the celebrated Rhodes Scholarship, and the Oxford University Press. The university describes its colleges as autonomous units operating in a manner similar to the way individual states function in the US. Oxford's self-governing colleges select their own students and provide housing, meals, libraries, and recreation. The university offers a diverse range of study covering fields such as engineering, history, medical science, and theology. Many Oxford students earn BA degrees after three years of study.
