UCL was established in 1826 to open up education in England for the first time to students of any race, class or religion. UCL was also the first university to welcome female students on equal terms with men. Academic excellence and conducting research that addresses real-world problems inform our ethos to this day. Indeed, UCL is now a modern and world-leading multidisciplinary university, its achievements publicly acknowledged by a whole range of performance tables, including the QS World University Rankings (2012) in which UCL was fourth. More than 4, 000 academic and research staff at UCL are dedicated to research and teaching of the highest standards.

The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is the UCL department which leads the IMESS programme. It is the largest national centre in the UK for the study of Central, Eastern and South-East Europe and Russia and one of the leading centres globally in this field.Greenwich More than 60 staff teach and conduct research in the economics, history, politics, sociology, anthropology, culture, literature and languages of these countries.

All IMESS students spend the first year at UCL SSEES where they are trained in discipline-specific theory and methods, through the lens of area and comparative studies. At the same time, during the first year, students have the opportunity to learn the basics of one of the partner languages, to take electives in their study track and to prepare for their research dissertation. Students from all 3 tracks also take a year-long course in Interdisciplinary Area Studies which, along with a number of non-assessed dissertation preparation sessions, prepares them distinctively for leading-edge and innovative research in area studies. UCL SSEES is the only department in Europe (and possibly worldwide) that can deliver this ambitious preparation for the second year of the programme; indeed, it is the remit of UCL SSEES to strive to do so.

Advanced genetic testing, including Y-DNA and mtDNA haplotyping, of modern Jewish communities around the world, has helped to determine which of the communities are likely to descend from the Israelites and which are not, as well as to establish the degrees of separation between the groups. Important studies archived here include the University College London study of 2002, Ariella Oppenheim's study of 2001, Ariella Oppenheim's study of 2000, Michael Hammer's study of 2000, and others.
Key findings:
# The main ethnic element of Ashkenazim (German and Eastern European Jews), Sephardim (Spanish and Portuguese Jews), Mizrakhim (Middle Eastern Jews), Juhurim (Mountain Jews of the Caucasus), Italqim (Italian Jews), and most other modern Jewish populations of the world is Israelite

Christians founded universities in medieval Europe. They were Christian institutions, but no one (to my knowledge) sat down to work out an explicitly Christian model of education before starting a university.
