The following information is taken from the UCL website:
UCL was the first university to be established in England after Oxford and Cambridge, to provide a progressive alternative to those institutions' social exclusivity, religious restrictions and academic constraints. UCL was thus 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. There were students from outside London, and from overseas, right from the start. UCL was the first English university to offer the systematic teaching of law, architecture and medicine.
