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. 

How many hours of activities am I committing to?   

To receive a certificate and a link to Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR), students need to complete a minimum of 21 hours on the strand of their choice. We hope, however, that you will want to do as many activities as you can to get the most out of the strand you choose.

Strands offer up to 50 hours of activities over the Spring and Summer terms. 

These consist of:

  • Term two talks, seminars and workshop (4 to 16 hours)
  • Weekend Challenge or 1 day workshop (6 to 12 hours)
  • 1 week Summer School (25 to 30 hours)

The total number of hours varies depending on the design of the strand. For more specific information, please contact the strand leader.

You can also do additional hours by taking up a Global Citizenship Volunteering placement and attending events for Careers with Global Impact.

It's free! 

The programme is free to join and open to all UCL undergraduate and taught postgraduate students.
