Information for Prospective Students
Year 12 Summer Schools
Every year, UCL runs a number of residential and non-residential summer schools for students in year 12 attending state schools. These aim to give students a taste of university life and the degree programmes we offer.
Please note that for these programmes there are certain eligibility criteria, and for residential summer schools priority is given to students from state schools outside of London.
