Bring Your Family to University Day for Year 8 and 9 students

On Saturday 28 February 2015 UCL will be hosting a Bring Your Family to University event for Year 8 and 9 students and their families. The event will run from 9:30-15:00 and will focus on choosing your GCSE options, university courses and careers. Every student must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (students can bring a maximum of two guests). Younger siblings are also welcome to attend.

The event is free and includes lunch.

  • Come from neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education
  • Are in local authority care
  • Parents from non-professional occupations
  • Are or have been eligible for free school meals within the past five years
