UCL visits to schools

Members of UCL staff and student ambassadors can visit your school to deliver sessions about university. We can offer a presentation or workshop tailored to your audience. The length of the session can be arranged to suit the time available to you, with most activities lasting between 25 and 45 minutes.

Please note that this service is open to non selective state schools which have a high proportion of students in receipt of free school meals (20% or higher), and talks should be aimed at highly able or gifted and talented students.

We can offer presentations and activities on the following themes for pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11.

  • Student life ā€“ a chance to meet current students and hear first-hand about their experiences
  • Making choices ā€“ looking at the decisions pupils will be making over the next few years, including choosing a university, degree programme and future career
  • Why go to university? ā€“ highlighting the benefits of higher education in order to raise aspirations.
