UCL Global Citizenship Programme


Active Citizenship

Develop and apply campaigning skills to help solve our biggest challenges.

Active Citizenship is open to undergraduates in their second year or above, plus taught postgraduate students

Active Citizenship means feeling responsible for the wellbeing of others anywhere in the world and understanding that concerted action can help make a difference.

In this strand, you’ll develop campaigning skills and put them into practice alongside a leading organisation.

What skills will I develop?

  • Strategic thinking
  • Communication
  • Networking
  • Campaigning

What will I do?

Hear from the experts 

You’ll take a crash course on citizen action.

You’ll engage with experts from across UCL and campaign organisations on a diverse range of topics, including legal and moral frameworks, communication strategies, and influencing political representatives.

Campaign together

You’ll be paired with a campaigning organisation that complements your skills and interests.

And you’ll work in a team to develop and implement a campaign that helps your partner organisation make a real impact.
