Lloyds Scholars Spring School: Alternative Paths to the City

UCL is delighted to be hosting the Lloyds Scholars School for the third year. This will take place 16 - 19 February 2016. 

Spring School

The Spring School is designed for Year 12 students who are considering a career in finance, but not planning to study a finance-related degree.

The Spring School:

  • is a non-residential, four day programme.
  • provides participants with the opportunity to attend a number of careers workshops showcasing alternative routes in to finance.
  • develops students' study skills.
  • gives students the opportunity to find out what studying at a Russell Group university is really like by participating in a number of academic sessions.
  • gives students an idea of life at UCL by interaction with current UCL undergraduate students. 
  • is free to attend for successful applicants.

For an idea of what is included in the spring school, please have a look at the timetable from the 2014 school (PDF): lloyds-scholars-timetable-2014

(Please note that in 2014 the school took place over 3 long days, whereas the 2016 school will be 4 shorter days.)


Please note that there are certain eligibility criteria for the spring school:

We ask that students meet the following academic criteria:

  • have achieved at least five A*-B grades at GCSE
  • are on track to meet UCL's minimum entry requirements
  • are taking at least two subjects from UCL's list of preferred A levels

Students must be attending a UK state school. Priority will then be given to students who:

  • will be the first generation in their family to attend university
  • come from neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education
  • attend schools or colleges with a low overall A Level (or equivalent) point score


The deadline for applications is Monday 4 January 2016.

Applicants will be contacted shortly after the deadline with the outcome of their application.
