Why UCL Stands Out

Founded in 1826, nestled in the heart of London, University College London (UCL) has emerged as a beacon of multidisciplinary education, boasting a vibrant community of over 50,000 students and 16,000 staff from 150+ countries. The ethos at UCL revolves around diversity, freedom, and a fearless spirit that challenges conventions, fostering an environment where individuals are encouraged to question and think differently.

UCL’s Impressive Achievements

In 2024, the University College London (UCL) stands as the epitome of academic excellence, earning the prestigious title of “University of the Year” according to The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. Recognized as a research powerhouse, UCL secured the 2nd position in the UK for research power in the Research Excellence Framework 2021, showcasing its commitment to pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Globally acclaimed, UCL proudly holds the 9th position in the 2024 QS World University Rankings, underscoring its significant international impact. Moreover, with a remarkable 30 Nobel Prize laureates among its alumni and staff, UCL’s legacy is firmly rooted in groundbreaking contributions to various fields, solidifying its reputation as a beacon of academic achievement and innovation.

Why Global Achievers Academy Chose UCL

University College London stands as the embodiment of a global academic powerhouse, aligning seamlessly with the mission of Global Achievers Academy. With an extensive network of 350,000 alumni across 190 countries, UCL’s influence resonates with our vision of uniting aspirational young minds worldwide. UCL’s commitment to sustainability is woven into the fabric of its state-of-the-art campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, showcasing an eco-friendly ethos that mirrors Global Achievers Academy values. Boasting a consistent top 10 global ranking for 12 years, UCL shares a common goal with Global Achievers Academy — empowering young individuals to succeed in a global community, underscored by the remarkable achievements of 30 Nobel laureates among UCL’s alumni. The progressive approach to learning and development embraced by both institutions is exemplified in UCL’s campaign, ‘Disruptive Thinking Since 1862,’ fostering disruptive thinking and nurturing future global leaders. UCL’s history of inclusivity, admitting students regardless of religion since 1828, aligns seamlessly with Global Achievers Academy’s core values, promoting exposure to diverse cultures and societies as a catalyst for shaping a more successful world.


UCL’s reputation for world-class research, global influence, and impact makes it an ideal partner for Global Achievers Academy in creating a home for the thought leaders of today and tomorrow.
