About

The UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities is a renowned centre of excellence, where research of world-leading quality feeds directly into all programmes of study.

Students benefit from the multi-disciplinary breadth of teaching in areas such as English, Philosophy, Greek & Latin, Hebrew & Jewish Studies along with more than 20 modern European languages. Programmes are available from our various centres for research, and the faculty also hosts the Slade School of Fine Art, which consistently contributes to the lively discourses of contemporary art, both nationally and internationally.

We aim to enable students to follow their own academic interests and to develop both intellectually and personally.

Student Life

UCL provides students with a wealth of services and facilities to meet their cultural, social, and leisure interests and their practical needs.

In addition to those facilities outlined below, the UCL Graduate School organises welcome events for new students, and lends its support to a number of postgraduate societies catering for a range of interests.

There is also a Postgraduate Association within the UCL Students Union, which represents graduate students both on UCL committees and in the Students Union.
