The UCL NXI programme is a facilitated talent matching programme that provides industry, the NHS and charities with talented student computer scientists to work on cutting-edge projects outside of university term-time.


Schools outreach

We are involved in a range of outreach activities for school and college students of all ages. Our aim is to inspire young minds, demonstrate how the application of real-life Computer Science can change lives and encourage interest in studying at UCL.



We keep regular contact with our alumni, many of whom play a role in shaping our teaching and community activities, and provide work opportunities for current students.
