Are you interested in graduate studies in the UK? Please mark your calendar for an information session with Monika Malak, International Liaison and Recruitment Officer at the International Office of the University College London. The session will be held on Tuesday, March 23rd at 3:30 pm in the Core Conference Room of 202 Hamilton Hall.
Described by the Sunday Times newspaper as "an intellectual powerhouse with a world class reputation", UCL has recently been ranked fourth in the world's top ten universities by the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings (2009) and it is one of the top three UK universities for the volume of its research assessed as 4* (world leading) in the most recent UK Research Assessment Exercise - RAE (2008).
They have seen an increasing number of US students applying to graduate degree programs at UCL and would like to provide more information for students interested in graduate studies in the UK. This will be a presentation outlining the graduate opportunities at UCL (at Master's and PhD level) and scholarships/funding opportunities available for study at the institution to US students (including the UCL Marshall Scholarship, Fulbright-UCL Award, UCL Overseas Research Scholarships, UCL Global Excellence Scholarships and others). The presentation would also cover topics such as the application procedures for graduate degree programs in the UK (liaison with potential supervisors in academic departments, research proposals etc.) and the advantages of studying in London.
