About the programme
The UCL Global Citizenship Programme is a wonderful opportunity to investigate real global issues and how they could be addressed, through research and your actions as a citizen. It's your chance to meet new people, hear new ideas, and contribute to solving our biggest global challenges.
You'll need to choose one of five strands: three are focused on UCL's Grand Challenges, and two focused on preparing for your next step after university and putting your skills into practice. There's no admissions test, application form or interview. You just need to complete the registration form, indicating which of the five strands you'd like to do. Spaces are limited, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. There are no exams, and the programme isn't assessed.
The programme is free to join and open to all UCL undergraduate or taught postgraduate students.
Broaden your academic experience
You’ll work collaboratively, in inter-disciplinary groups, to understand the challenges posed by real-world problems, contribute to finding solutions and develop the qualities of a global citizen.
Learn new skills
You’ll strengthen your future employability by developing hands-on skills, like negotiating, presentation, photography and problem-solving.
Experience something new
Depending on which strand you choose, you could take part in a World Health Organisation simulation, make a film, contribute to a social justice campaign, learn a language, or meet global employers.
