Bring Your Family to University Days

UCL is proud to host Bring Your Family to University days for students from Year 5 right up to Year 11, and their families.

These events run on Saturdays from 9:30-15:00. Attendees will learn more about university and specifically UCL, choosing GCSE, A Level or IB subjects, different university subjects and career paths. These events include activities such as subject-specific taster lectures, careers panels, campus tours, parent guidance sessions, and the opportunity to talk to current university students studying a range of science or humanities degree subjects.

Every student must be accompanied by a parent, other adult relative or guardian. Younger siblings are also welcome to attend. The events are free and include lunch.

Please note: students must be attending a non-selective state school in the UK. Priority will be given to students who meet one or more of our Pre-16 elibility criteria.

"It was very enjoyable and helped me think more about my future"

"I really enjoyed this event because it gave me a real insight on life at university and the careers that are available for me"

Comments from parents:

"My 13 year old daughter started the day adamant that university was not for her and we left with her so positive about her future and how much she would enjoy a university life. Well done!"

"All speakers were excellent. Very motivational in getting me thinking about what we need to research. Very worthwhile for both parent and child."

"The students are a credit to UCL and the alumni at the end were wonderful. Very interesting and informative. I will now encourage my daughter to choose subjects she loves rather than try too hard to plan for a specific degree"

"The event was excellent, it was really needed and we feel more relaxed as a family to go forward"
