UCL was founded in 1826 to open up university education in England to those who had been excluded from it. In 1878, it became the first university in England to admit women students on equal terms with men.
Academic excellence and conducting research that addresses real-world problems inform our ethos to this day and our plans for the future.

The National Health Service (NHS) is the healthcare system in the UK and is primarily funded through general taxation rather than requiring insurance payments.
Some NHS services are free at the point of delivery, others you need to pay for. The Information for overseas visitors to the UK on the NHS website provides detailed information on how to access health treatment in the UK if you need it.
Anyone making an application for a visa of more than 6 months after the 5 April 2015 will be required to pay the immigration health surcharge to access NHS healthcare in the UK. If you hold a visa that you applied for before 6 April 2015 you will not need to pay the surcharge. For more information about this please see the UCL Immigration and Visa page, and the UKVI website.
