The program details

The CIEE Study Center in London opened in 2000, and added University College London (UCL) as a partner in 2006. This program is designed for disciplined students who are highly motivated, think creatively, and are eager to experience a different culture.

University College London (UCL). This challenging and highly selective top-ranked UK university has a world-class reputation. Founded in 1826, UCL is the largest college within the University of London, first to admit students of any religion and social background, and first to admit women on equal terms with men. Nearly 40 percent of students come from more than 140 countries. The campus – or college precinct – provides a cloistered environment with cosmopolitan surroundings.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Students take UCL classes with British students as well as other CIEE and international students.

  • GRADING

    Assessment varies by course and department. Where possible, students are assessed like their UCL peers. Academic year and spring semester students to take the end of the year exam during the UCL summer term. Fall semester students are assessed either with a special exam or end of term paper.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Students notice striking differences in the British model, which is less structured and requires students to take more responsibility and initiative. The CIEE staff supports students as they adapt to this new style. Students take a series of lecture courses, each of which may include seminars, tutorials, and/or labs. Students are expected to prepare in advance for seminars and tutorials by researching topics for discussion, writing essays, or solving problems, spending at least as much time studying as they spend in class. Each study abroad student has a UCL tutor for support. The fall term runs from September to December; the spring term runs from January to March; the summer term runs from April to June. Students participating in the U.S. spring semester must attend UCL for the spring and summer terms, and there is a four-week break between terms.
