Talks and tours
There will be a number of ‘need to know’ and subject-specific talks throughout the day. Check the programme to identify which ones you’d like to attend.
The exhibition is your chance to talk to UCL academics and students about our academic programmes. Please note that exhibition opening hours vary by faculty, although all will be open between 15:30 - 17:00.
UCL’s student support services will be grouped together in our informal Advice Lounge. This is where you can ask non-academic questions or just chat to some of our current students - oh, and grab a free cup of tea!
