Bring Your Family to University Days

Bring Your Family to University Days 2015-16

UCL will be hosting a number of Bring Your Family to University days in 2015-2016 for students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. These events for students and their families will run on Saturdays from 10:00-15:00 and will focus on choosing your GCSE options, selecting your A levels or IB, university courses and careers. 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.

If you would like to be notified when applications open for the next Bring Your Family to University Day please add your email address using the following form: Bring Your Family to University Day: Expression of interest form.

Students must be attending a non-selective state school and priority will be given to students who meet one or more of the following the following criteria:

  • Have no family history of Higher Education (e.g. your parents didn't go to university)
  • 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

Comments from previous students (February 2015):

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

"I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to pick for GCSE but this has helped"

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

"It made it easy to make a choice when it comes to education"

Comments from previous parents (February 2015):

"I am so grateful that I came to this event. I am now more confident that my child will be able to attend a competitive university regardless of my financial situation. I also understand better why reading is so important"

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

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