At UCL we are trying to re-think classic African Studies programs through four bespoke career focussed pathways on African Studies with Health, Environment, Education and Heritage.

We are pleased to announce that we will hold a virtual open day for prospective students on Thursday 23rd of March 12-2pm.

Please sign up for an opportunity to learn more about our programmes and to ask whatever questions you like via a live chat. Dr Matt Davies will be online to field your queries. You can also chat to one of our current students Ms Catherine Hodge.
