UCL Global Citizenship Programme


What's the right strand for me?

The UCL Global Citizenship Programme offers students a choice of strands.


In order to review UCL's co-curricular offer,  it has been decided to pause the GCP programme for 2020-21. This will help us to review, plan and develop an exciting programme for students 2021-22. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the programme. 

The UCL Global Citizenship Programme strands link to UCL's Grand Challenges themes of global health and justice and equality.

They foster the development of skills for global citizenship, such as campaigning and social entrepreneurship.

All the strands are open to all undergraduate and taught postgraduate students.

The strands give you the opportunity to:

  • participate in group projects
  • hear from experts on global issues
  • work with external organisations
  • develop skills that will help your degree and prepare you for your next step after university.

Our Programme is free to take part and places on strands are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
