Bring Your Family to University Days

UCL is proud to host Bring Your Family to University days for students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 and their families.

These events will run on Saturdays from 9:30-15:00. Attendees will learn more about UCL, choosing GCSE, A Level or IB subjects, different university subjects and career paths. Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils can also apply to attend a subject specific day. These events include a subject specific taster lecture and careers panel, advice on choosing suitable GCSE options, and the opportunity to talk to current university students studying a science or humanities degree subject.

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.

Apply for your place by completing this short application form.

Comments from students in 2015-16:

"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 in 2015-16:

"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"
