Located in the heart of central London, the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) is a global hub of ideas and debate in education and related social sciences and has a true commitment to research and teaching excellence. World-renowned academic staff conduct research for governments, ministries, schools and universities, meaning that the Institute’s expertise continually influences and shapes educational policy across the world.

The IOE has been ranked as the best university in the world for the study of Education for the last eight years (QS World University Rankings by Subject) and also received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, a celebration of excellence, innovation and public benefit in work carried out by UK colleges and universities, in 2015.

The IOE is the number one choice for education professionals from around the world to develop themselves and their careers.

Pre-sessional English lessons are also available if you need to improve your reading, writing, speaking, listening before your studies.

University College London provides a range of housing options which includes two Halls of Residence (catered), self-catered Student Houses and Intercollegiate Halls (both catered and self-catered) shared with other colleges of the University of London.

Location

UCL Institute of Education is based in the centre of London by Russell Square. The area is served by many bus and tube routes, with main hubs such as Euston and King’s Cross a short walk away. Access to Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick airports is also extremely easy for students flying in from around the world.

I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
