Taught Students

See the information in the sections below to find out more about the support and opportunities available to taught students in the Division.


Undergraduate students can take part in the UCL Transitions Programme.

The UCL Transition Programme supports all first year students in their transition to university. This transition can be a particularly stressful time for students as they adapt to a different way of life and new academic demands. Mentors are at the heart of the Transition Programme. They provide peer support to first year students through regular group mentoring meetings and peer-assisted learning sessions.

    Events and Opportunities

    Equality and Diversity

    Bridging the Gap - Bedford Bugle

    Bridging the Gap’ is an initiative by the Bedford Bugle to educate (ourselves and) the public about the factors and consequences of gender disparity in academia. We hope our readers will enjoy this series of interviews with top researchers in the field. We also hope that by bringing these issues to light, awareness can be created, followed by positive change.

    Support for students


    The UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences (PALS) endeavours to be an equal opportunities environment in which each and every student and staff member should be able to study and work without discrimination. UCL's equal opportunities policy means that all students and staff have the right to work in an environment free from discrimination, prejudice, and all forms of harassment and bullying.

    However, occasionally, some people are unfairly treated. In PALS several members of staff have been appointed as Departmental Equal Opportunity Liaison Officers (DEOLOs):

    Staff and students can come to any of the DEOLOS, for formal or informal advice about equal opportunities issues such as discrimination, harassment, or disability access. Every enquiry is treated in confidence and if we can't resolve your queries, we will find someone who can.
