Parent/Carer Visits to UCL
Parents and carers get a taste of university through our Bring Your Parents to University evenings.
We offer visits for school pupils in Years 8 -11 and their parents. The programme includes a campus tour led by current UCL Student Ambassadors and a short interactive lecture delivered by our PhD students who offer entertaining, thought provoking lectures which aim to inspire young people to study at university. We focus on making the right choices at school and discuss the challenges and opportunities of higher education from a parents’ perspective.
