University College London (UCL) was founded in 1826 and is a constituent college of the University of London. Today, UCL has over 21,600 undergraduate and graduate students. UCL is a member of the Russell Group of Universities and a part of the elite G-5 sub-group of universities in the U.K. It is a part of the Golden Triangle. UCL is most noted for its Clinical Medicine ranked 1st (exclusive of North America), Neuroscience & Behavior ranked 1st (exclusive of North America) and 2nd world-wide, Immunology ranked 2nd in Europe and Pharmacology & Toxicology 1st (exclusive of North America) and fourth world-wide. Agricultural Sciences research at UCL is advancing to the forefront world-wide, according to recent ranking panels.
