    also I notice UCL is bottom of the table for student satisfaction in the Civil Engineering subject league table

    even taking it with a pinch of salt that still looks pretty bad.
    They do seem to be seeking to address it.

    The UCL criticism was generally directed at chemical engineering not civil. The ChemEng course has been revised.

    Meanwhile UCL also has the Bartlett School of Architecture, one of the best schools in the world, and the CivEng folks do some work alongside the Bartlett.

    I doubt there's any serious problem coursewise with CivEng at UCL. But ask the department to put you in touch with a couple of current students. And check out the University College, London forum on TSR.

    There's also absolutely no problem completing a BEng at UCL or anywhere and then doing an MSc somewhere else.

    Thank you, and sorry for the late reply. I asked the school to introduce some of the students to me, but unfortunately they said they cannot. Please let me ask another thing. According to the Guardian University League Tables of 2015, UCL has good reputation for civil engineering. However, it's now ranked very low, which makes me hesitate to make a decision to study at UCL. I don't think the course suddenly became terrible, but I still doubt that there is something a bit bad about the teaching of UCL. I really appreciate everyone's advices.

    Look at unistats for the more detailed breakdown of "student satisfaction".

    It's fine, except for some criticism of assessment feedback. I wouldn't say that's a major issue and my other post mentioned how UCL was addressing it:
