Our department is committed to working with secondary and sixth-form students who are interested in pursuing higher education in History.
A Level Teachers’ Day for History and Ancient History, Tuesday 16 July 2019, 10.30 - 4.20 p.m
All teachers of History and Ancient History are welcome to join us for a day of academic sessions designed to enhance your A Level teaching. There will also be opportunities to take a tour of the UCL campus, to hear from our Admissions Tutor, Dr David Sim, about studying History at UCL, and to talk informally with staff and current students.
The event is free of charge, but registration is essential. Current PGCE students who will be teaching A Level in 2019/20 are very welcome to attend.
Sessions for History and Ancient History will run in parallel—you are welcome to mix and match if you teach both subjects at A Level. Further details about the content of the sessions coming soon!
Sign up here.
We always want to hear from enthusiastic students or teachers of History who would like to meet our staff and students, engage with our research or find out more about the department. To discuss possible opportunities, please contact Cari Tuhey.
UCL History is dedicated to widening access to Higher Education. Specific activities and support are available for eligible schools and individual students, including our popular 'Making History' residential summer school. This is attended by Year 12 students and their feedback has been very positive:
" "I feel that I have become a more insightful and inquisitive person and I have considered new aspects of history"
" "I really enjoyed my time here and will strongly recommend it to others as it has been extremely helpful in convincing me that history is the right degree for me"
