UCL Advocates are current UCL students and alumni who attended non-selective state schools in London. They visit their former schools and colleges to give presentations highlighting the benefits of university.
Citrus Saturday is an entrepreneurship challenge for 12–14 year olds. It’s currently run by UCL Advances and will become a charity in the next year, giving young people all over Europe the chance to become entrepreneurs for a day and run their own business.
Year 11 Summer Schools
UCL runs two non-residential summer schools for highly able Year 11 pupils. They provide a great opportunity to experience lectures, research and socialising in a university environment, and aim to give participants a real taste of university life.
Inspire is a long-term engagement programme aimed at gifted students. The programme creates a community of bright, ambitious young people from under-represented backgrounds by bringing together high-achieving students from a number of schools in the same local area.
Junior Masterclasses offer an opportunity for students from Years 8-11 to visit UCL and experience what it’s like to study at university.
UCL Mentoring Programme
The Outreach Office trains current UCL students to mentor pupils at partner schools and colleges. The mentoring schemes aim to improve the attainment of gifted pupils from backgrounds which are under-represented in higher education.
In 2012/13 UCL will continue Southwark Ambitions, a five-year programme run in partnership with Pembroke and St Catharine’s Colleges, Cambridge and Excellence in Southwark.
University Challenge is an exciting programme of subject-themed days of activities at UCL for groups of gifted and talented Year 9 pupils from state schools.
