UCL Campaign


It's All Academic Festival 15 September 2018

Quiz leading academics and get hands-on with some of UCL's most exciting research at It's All Academic - a free festival for all ages and interests

This year’s It’s All Academic Festival brings together a range of talks, tours, workshops, pop-up events and interactive experiences.

Join us throughout the day at UCL's Bloomsbury campus on Gower Street - see maps and transport advice here.

Explore what life will look like for the future human with a panel of UCL experts, tour the hidden history of UCL’s campus, join the Constitution Unit to debate the will of the people, test how clean your phone really is (if you dare), go behind the scenes in the museums to discover mystery specimens, recreate UCL’s iconic portico, build a brain - and much, much more.

In between, relax and re-energise with a range of pop-up food and drink stalls.

Visit the Festival Hub on the day inside a red double decker bus parked in the Quad for all Festival information, inlcuding your free maps and guides to what's on. Our student ambassadors will also be out in force to help you find your way around - spot them in their pink It's All Academic t-shirts.

UCL alumni have exclusive access to free refreshments, activities and live music throughout the day in the popular Alumni and Supporters Lounge.

Access the web app for all the latest updates on the day.
