With an academic staff made up of industry professionals, our very competitive degree programmes allow you to carry out ground-breaking research alongside some of the top people in their fields of expertise. UCL was one of the first universities to start a skill development programme and you will be able to take advantage of a wide range of training courses (e.g. our internal teacher training scheme), which equip you with the right skills for your research and future career. In addition to regular sessions with academic supervisors, our MPhil/PhD students have a dedicated administrative team along with access to a range of support services and regular social activities where interdisciplinary research flourishes. Based in the famous Bloomsbury area, we are in the heart of London so it is easy to attend research meetings and networking events here in the capital or make use of the excellent transport links to travel further afield.
