Welcome to the Association of University Administrators (AUA) at UCL

The AUA exists to advance and promote the professional recognition and development of all who work in professional services roles in higher education, and to be an authoritative advocate and champion for the sector.

AUA members are individually and collectively committed to:

  • the continuous development of their own and others' professional knowledge, skills and practices;
  • actively championing equality of educational and professional opportunity;
  • the advancement of higher education through the robust application of professional knowledge, skills and practices;
  • the highest standards of fair, ethical and transparent professional behaviour.

The UCL branch of the AUA has a membership spanning a diverse range of roles and career stages. Members have access to all the benefits of national membership, plus an active programme of branch and London-region events.

New for 2016: we are organising a series of events which focus on the days in lives of senior professional services staff within UCL. Each event is intended to give an insight into a different area of UCL and what it’s really like to be in the senior roles at UCL, including their journey to these positions.  

The first event takes place on 14th July at 12:15 in Roberts 106 and gives an insight into the day of Wendy Appleby, UCL Registrar and Head of Student & Registry Services, and Derfel Owen, Director of Academic Services.

You are welcome to bring your lunch along to the event, and those who are not yet part of the AUA are welcome to attend.

If you wish to attend please register at the Eventbrite link.
