About the programme
The UCL Global Citizenship Programme offers students a choice of strands. These link to UCL's Grand Challenges themes of global health and justice and equality and foster the development of skills for global citizenship, such as campaigning and social entrepreneurship.
Students have the opportunity to develop understanding on a range of global issues and develop skills for global citizenship through:
- hearing from experts on global issues
- interdisciplinary learning experiences
- group projects
- engaging with external organisations
- producing outputs (such as films, posters, or business ideas)
The programme includes opportunities to volunteer with UCL's Volunteering Service Unit and to meet employers and organisations offering careers with global impact.
The programme is free to join and open to all UCL undergraduate and 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, or meet global employers.
