University College London (UCL) is a public research university in London, England, and the oldest and largest constituent college of the federal University of London.
Founded in 1826 as London University, UCL was the first university institution established in London and the first in England to be entirely secular, to admit students regardless of their religion, and to admit women on equal terms with men.
UCL markets itself as ‘London’s global university’, and this claim is certainly justified by its high proportion of international students – it ranks 10th in the world on this measure. For the period 1999 to 2009 it was the 13th most-cited university in the world (and most-cited in Europe). There are 28 Nobel Prize winners and three Fields Medalists amongst UCL’s alumni and current and former staff.
