Explore UCL is a four day residential summer school for x100 Year 11 students attending non-selective state schools. Students must be highly able (expected to achieve five or more A or A*s at GCSE), and planning to progress to post-16 education. They must also meet UCL's eligibility criteria.

Students can apply for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) or the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences strand. The programme includes interactive workshops and taster lectures designed to help students explore a wide range of university degree subjects. Sessions also cover information and guidance on topics such as the UCAS process, student finance, personal statements and career planning, and students are assigned group presentation projects to work on throughout the week.

Students stay over in Halls of Residence and evening activities provide them with a taster of student life in London. All catering, accommodation and travel costs are covered for successful applicants.
