UCL is the oldest and largest member of the University of London federation. Often described as a "university within a university," it is among Britain's most diverse and prestigious institutions. The academic year is divided into three academic terms. You may study for the fall term, two terms during the spring, or the full year.
UCL offers excellent academics across the board, but the English department is particularly prestigious. Your academic experience will be specialized and in-depth, with study in no more than two departments. Many popular choices for Rice students in the past have included English, Anthropology, Economics, History and Psychology.
