University College London (UCL) offers UT students an excellent opportunity to take courses alongside local and international students in the heart of London. UCL has consistently ranked among the top 10 universities in the world, and is known for its academic rigor. This is an excellent program for Anthropology, Economics, History, GOV/IRG, and College of Natural Science majors. UCL's exciting and unique Arts and Sciences (BASc) program is a perfect fit for Plan II majors.

Participants earn UT in-residence credit. All grades earned for the courses undertaken are computed into the official UT Austin GPA, just as they would be for grades earned in courses taken on campus.
