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. 

The UCL Global Citizenship Programme offers a number of strands for students to choose from. These link to UCL's Grand Challenges themes:

  • global health
  • cultural understanding
  • justice and equality and, and;
  • foster the development of skills for global citizenship, such as campaigning and social entrepreneurship.
The programme includes opportunities to volunteer with UCL's Volunteering Service Unit and to meet employers and organisations offering careers with global impact. 

It's free! 

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.
