Second and final year undergraduate programme


Second and final year students - overview

The focus of this part of the UCL Global Citizenship Programme is on putting your skills into practice in practical, real-world projects, preparing you for life beyond university.

Students have a choice each year to take one of three options - Enterprise, Volunteering and Employability. Each of these develops skills in different areas, and helps prepare students for life beyond UCL.

The three options have been developed by UCL Advances, the UCL Volunteering Services Unit and UCL Careers Service. Each offers many other opportunities to students at all levels of study beyond their UCL Global Citizenship Programme contributions.

Please note that students may only take each strand once - there is no option to repeat a strand in subsequent years. This will help us manage demand for places, as well as ensuring students take advantage of a wide range of opportunities while at UCL.


The Enterprise strand of the UCL Global Citizenship Programme will nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of participants, beginning with an Enterprise Boot Camp. Students will be able to understand the fundamentals of:

  • The way business works
  • The problems business looks to address
  • The modern business environment
  • The most common tools of analysis

Following this introduction, there will be additional activity to put these skills into practice for the rest of the fortnight. 

This strand is coordinated by UCL Advances.

This second and final year strand is a two week academy for future voluntary sector leaders and others who embrace the challenge of solving complex local and global problems using skills and ingenuity. Students will learn about the voluntary sector before taking on projects in partnership with some of London's charities and community organisations to solve real problems.

The VSU coordinates this strand of the UCL Global Citizenship Programme.

UCL Careers

Are you:

  • Looking to build your CV with some work experience this summer?
  • Graduating this year without a job to go to?
  • Fed up of applying for opportunities only to be rejected along the way?
  • Daunted by the idea of life after UCL, what to do next and how to take the first step?

Then the UCL Careers employability summer school is for you.

Having a UCL degree is not enough any more, employers look for a range of diverse extra curricular experiences and global citizens who can tackle real-world problems.

Why not:

  • meet employers
  • take part in interactive workshops
  • get access to a jobs market
  • learn how to market yourself

Plus much more to help you get ahead of the rest.
