UCL Council confirms UCL/IOE merger decision 21 October 2014

UCL Council has today (20 October) confirmed its decision that UCL should merge with the Institute of Education (IOE).

Subject to legal agreements and final approval at the meeting of IOE Council on 25 November, the two universities will merge from 2 December 2014.

Having embarked on a strategic partnership in October 2012, the two institutions announced in February this year that they were to consult on a proposed merger. The IOE Council confirmed its support for merger at its meeting on 8 October.

Professor Michael Arthur, UCL Provost, said: “Today’s decision by UCL Council marks another important step towards a merger that both our institutions believe will deliver significant advances in the field of social sciences and education.

“The combination of the IOE and UCL can be much more than the sum of their parts, and I believe that both of us will gain from working as a single institution, delivering new research collaborations, and curriculum developments, as well as extending our influence and reach.”
