STEP Lectures

Online Sessions for UCL Mathematics applicants during 2023

A series of live online sessions will be made available to all UCL Mathematics applicants who receive an offer through UCAS. The initial sessions will provide general advice and information about STEP and cover techniques and approaches across various mathematical topics. The remaining sessions provide a close look at past-paper questions from both STEP, again by topic areas, and advice about examination technique.

The live sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday and will start at 17:30 GMT.

The programme will be hosted on an online education platform (UCL Extend), where the videos, a discussion forum and other resources will be available. All sessions are recorded and will be available for later viewing should you receive an offer only after the series has started, or if you miss a session.

We will invite you to contact us about how to receive this support shortly after you receive an offer through UCAS.

Please note that logins for UCL STEP resources and links to the online lectures are not sent out automatically and UCAS offer holders need to contact the Mathematics department for a login. Please send an email request to admissions@math.ucl.ac.uk

Similar online support has been provided to UCL mathematics applicants since 2014. Feedback comments included:

I really enjoyed the online lecture. It was helpful in making the connections between the different areas of maths and how to produce more elegant solutions.
Everything was perfectly clear and very informative, thank you.
Great session and really helpful!
Really useful! Thank you very much.

STEP Study Days

Two STEP study days will take place at UCL in addition to the online sessions. They are designed to complement the online support and will be a great opportunity to come to UCL to learn and practice mathematics. The focus will be on gaining experience in answering past paper questions but there will also be teaching sessions on some selected topics.

We will contact you when registration for the study days opens.

The provisional dates for the study days are as follows:

Day 1 (for all holding a UCL offer): Wednesday 5th April 2023

Day 2 (for firm choice only): Tuesday 30th May 2023
