School visits to UCL
Year 12 Higher Education Awareness Day (HEAD) Visits
We offer half-day HEAD visits to UCL for groups of 25–35 students in Year 12 or studying Access Courses at a Further Education College. Visits include a welcome presentation and workshop, an opportunity to meet UCL Student Ambassadors and a tour of the campus.
We can also offer an interactive lecture to give students a chance to experience studying at university level. The taster lectures are delivered by UCL PhD students, and are designed to challenge students by introducing them to a subject they may not have studied before.
Alternatively we can offer the group a presentation and workshop. This will cover an HE-related topic such as How to Write a Personal Statement.
We also offer a shorter version of the HEAD visit to UCL for larger groups, and can accommodate up to 50 students for these visits.
