The Open Day gave departments an opportunity to showcase their degree programmes and facilities -offering talks, taster lectures, guided tours and hands-on activities.

The feedback from the event has been very positive. Visitors left with an 'excellent impression of UCL' and found the academics and student stewards 'particularly helpful, informative and welcoming'.
