Summer Challenge 2013 offers departmental funding and teaching opportunities for postgraduates

30 October 2012

UCL Outreach is currently recruiting UCL postgraduates to be tutors for Summer Challenge, a short academic course for Year 12 students, and is also offering funding to departments wishing to run their own Summer Challenge courses in 2013.

Summer Challenge piloted in 2012 as part of the UCL Horizons programme, supporting the aims of UCL’s Access Agreement. It was designed to increase the number of high-quality applications made to UCL by students from under-represented backgrounds, and to develop their independent research, critical thinking, academic writing and presentation skills.

UCL Outreach is currently recruiting UCL postgraduates to be Summer Challenge 2013 tutors, and is also offering an opportunity for academic departments to apply for £1,300 in Outreach funding to run their own Summer Challenge courses.

The deadline for both types of applications was 7 January 2013; the process is now closed.
