Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Up to 16 semester credits per session

Students looking for a prestigious university to study abroad in London need look no further than University College London (UCL). UCL is a modern, outward-looking institution, committed to engaging with the major issues of the day. It is ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the world, and only admits the highest caliber of students. More than 20 alumni hold Nobel Prizes, and the university has been named the top research university in the U.K. Over 27,000 students from more than 140 countries call UCL home, and UCL has the highest number of professors of any university in the U.K. UCL was the first university in England to admit students of all races, religions, and classes, and the first to give female students equal standing to their male counterparts. UCL was also a pioneer in study abroad, admitting Japanese students as early as 1863!

UCL FEE INFORMATION:

The program price varies based on the admitting department. A breakdown of the departments can be found on the UCL course offerings page.

CREDIT INFORMATION

Students at University College London (UCL) take up to 16 U.S. credits per semester. Course credits at UCL are determined based on how many “units” they are worth. Most UCL courses are worth .5, 1, or 2 units, and a UCL unit is the equivalent of 8 U.S. semester credits – in other words, a .5 unit course is worth 4 U.S. semester credits; a 1 unit course is worth 8 U.S. semester credits. Credit amounts per course are indicated on the course offerings page.
