General Introduction

The UCL Club of Beijing exists to serve the UCL community in China, particularly that in and around Beijing. We are one of the longest standing and most well established clubs in Beijing. The Club is officially recognised by the University College London. UCL Club of Beijing formally joined WRSA in 2010.

We have a large and active community of over 3500 members, both Chinese and non Chinese, from all ages and walks of life. Our official language is English, as this is a guaranteed common language arising from our common educational experience.

Whilst the Club is primarily aimed at alumni, current students are welcome to join as student   members, and those who have held teaching posts at UCL are also welcome. Honorary membership exists for those of outstanding contribution to the University or UCLCB.   More details of membership criteria are in the Constitution.

The Club holds at least one event every year in addition to the regular pub meetup. Most of these are advance registration only (with the exception of the pub meetup) so that we have an idea of numbers. Event details are sent out on the start of each year via our regular newsletter, and updated to our Wechat and Linkedin groups.

Constitution and Bylaws

The Constitution and Bylaws are in preparation.

History of the University

(source: UCL Website)

Just 175 years ago, the benefits of a university education in England were restricted to men who were members of the Church of England; UCL was founded to challenge that discrimination. UCL was the first university to be established in England after Oxford and Cambridge, providing a progressive alternative to those institutions’ social exclusivity, religious restrictions and academic constraints.

The university's main building was designed by William Wilkins who went on to build the National Gallery.

Some Interesting Facts

The first university in England to admit students of any race, class or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.

Students from outside London, and from overseas, present from the start.

A teaching programme was established in which religious beliefs would not constrain the dissemination of knowledge and exploration of ideas.

Academic disciplines introduced as required by the emerging industrial and commercial society; the first English university to offer the systematic teaching of law, architecture and medicine.
