The module also included an excursion to the Bank of England because it’s an important institution for trade
Modules are tpus, and many make use of London as a learning environment with excursions and fields trips in and around the city.
UCL offers accommodation in the heart of London and the Summer School also offers a programme of social and cultural events to help you make the most of your time in the capital.
UCL is consistently ranked among the world’s top universities (ranked #8 in the world overall, QS 2022) and the UCL Summer School offers students a unique opportunity to experience life as a UCL student. 98% of students in 2019 said they would recommend our programme to a friend.
In summer 2019 we welcomed students of over 50 nationalities, from over 250 universities around the world, making the UCL Summer School a truly international experience in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic cities.
I was interested in the module because it’s linked to what I’m studying at home and I can transfer the credit
A lot of our teachers have done their own research at UCL; for example, today’s lecturer has done studies into crime and social media and she’s just published her findings so it was cool to learn about that directly from the source. We’ve had guest lecturers too so we get exposed to a lot of different peoples’ viewpoints … The highlight for me however was taking a trip to the Old Bailey where we sat in on two murder cases. That was just crazy and such a unique experience.
The class is quite diverse; we come from all over the world so there is a nice range of opinions and experiences. The teaching is a bit different to home – my favourite thing is that it’s not so dense where you end up having trouble with it or not enjoying it but you still gain a lot of useful information. We’ve had two field trips; one to the King’s Cross redevelopment area and another one to the Eastern Cluster – a group of skyscrapers in the city of London and one of the city’s most important opportunity areas’.More
