UCL Global Citizenship Programme
The Programme takes place for two weeks, from Tuesday 28 May to Friday 7 June 2019 (excluding the weekend). It's open to all UCL undergraduates and taught postgraduates, and takes place on the Bloomsbury campus.
Can I still register?
- You can still register for a place on the programme, but we are running a waiting list for each strand as the available places have now been allocated
- Everyone who registers receives a confirmation that their registration was received, and this also says if they have been allocated a place, or if they are on a waiting list, for the relevant strand
- On 1 May there will be an ‘early check-in’ when we will require everyone who has been allocated a place on a strand to reconfirm that they are able to take up their place.
- You will have until 7 May to reconfirm your place.
- From 8 May we will re-allocate any available spaces to students on the waiting lists.
- We expect some people to drop out at the early check-in stage, so if you are on a waiting list, don’t worry, because there is still the chance you will be able to attend.
- Register for:

- Register for Employability - this will take you to the myUCLCareers web-page, and you'll need to enter your UCL student login details. This will take you to the Employability strand events page, where you can register, and find out more.
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.
