University College London (UCL) has risen in rankings in recent year, and currently ranks 4th in the world in the 2009 Times Higher Education rankings, and 3rd in Europe in the 2010 Academic Ranking of World Universities. A part of me thinks that's down to my having studied there for the last 3...

For the last 4 years, I've been living (and supposedly working!) as a student in "Europe's premier city" (I won't bother sourcing that quote, but needless to say it was a sweeping, unsubstantiated comment from a member of our government). The first thing I have to say is that, for a student at...

“Why UCL Union Sucks”

ConsShame about the union

Unlike many other student unions UCL union seems only to cater for the more moroses of the student population. It prides itself in providing cheap booze and not much else. I'm now in my third year at UCL and became board of the Union during my first term simply because the same nights laid on...

On Thursday the 11th of January 2001 UCL Union rejected the membership application of the Circle Pub Crawl Society. We were very bitter about the Union's decision as we thought we had much to contribute the the students Union and were eager to use the Union as a channel for publicity so those who...

I have just completed an MSc. degree in Computing Science (1 year) at Imperial College after having done a joint honour degree in Math and Computing (3 years) at UCL. Having been at 2 different and good universities, I feel that I am able to give a valuable contrasting opinion both. Imperial is a...

UCL is not like other universities. You will work harder (though not as hard as at Oxbridge). You will run up more debts than anywhere else (I worked evenings, weekends, and holidays, and graduated with 12K of debt). You will have a greater range of possible extracurricular activities than...

ProGenerally good university, reputation, location

ConsUCL Union

I chose UCL after being rejected by LSE (wasn't from a state school or waving an £8,000 wad of cash in their face you see), although with hindsight its actually been for the better. Academically, UCL varies quite a bit, it has some of the best and worst departments in the country. Discounting...

Proexcellant teaching and facilities

Consdisorganised administration

UCL language centre has the best facilities I have seen for any evening course. Although expensive, it provides small classes, with native speakers as teachers. The classes maybe are a little long at two hours, especially as they are quite intense. Alongside the instruction you can use the...

ConsReally bad student paper, Sports night

I graduated from UCL a year ago and recently I have joined a night class at the Language Centre (at a very reasonable price due to being alumni). UCL looks after you. UCL is a great institution for many reasons. - Good back up from staff and the college I had to apply for two hardship funds. they...

I have only completed my first year at UCL, so I have some way to go, but I can't wait to get back to uni! Having scanned through the other opinions, I have a few points with which to agree/differ. IT facilities... this is of particular importance to me, being a Computer Science (CS) student...

Consbuzz of the city

Yeah baby. London is a great place to be and you will always have things to do. So many pubs, so many clubs. Lots of shops and parks. But it is expensive. Whilst you may get Halls of Residence (likely to be in the £70-110 per week bracket) you will undoubtedly have to find a house to live at some...

Consexpense of living in london

I am now in my second year at UCL. To be honest it was not my first choice. I went to UCL because I was rejected by Cambridge. However, having studied at UCL for a year I can't think of a better place to be. Living in London is an experience in itself. If you get into hall in the first year you...

ConsStudent union is lethargic and out of touch

As most people know, it was proposed in October that UCL should merge with Imperial College. The reasons being that Imperial would benefit by having degree programmes other than science and that UCL would benefit by having a higher income. It was probably the most poorly thought out idea in...
