As students in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities began their studies in autumn 2020, a tumultuous time to be starting university, Inspiring Minds welcomed you to the Faculty. You’ve joined a vibrant community of scholars and teachers who are passionate about the arts and humanities and their role in making sense of our world – and who are committed to sharing that passion with others.
Your time in UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities will be full of opportunities to explore new things, to reflect critically on new ideas, and to engage with new people. This fully-online welcome programme continues to be available to you and we highly recommend taking a look at the ICYMI section, which contains reflections on Inspiring Minds events.
The Inspiring Minds student induction has finished for this year, but please do take time to explore this site, we've kept everything on this website in case you missed it first time around.
