UCL's Public Engagement Unit provides a number of training opportunities for staff and students across UCL.

We also offer one-to-one support to help you develop public engagement ideas, and to apply for funding for public engagement projects. To find out more about our individual support, please contact us.

You can also find practical toolkits about evaluation, and about running your own engagement projects, on our web pages.

Funding is available to students' to turn their ideas into practice.
