You'll want to visit UCL and UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) if you're thinking about studying here. Several options are available.
We know you have many options when considering a place at university. At STS, we want you to experience UCL as a place: wander through the corridors, catch a glimpse of some unusual architecture, smell the pizza, feel the energy that will charge this next phase of your life. We want you to visit.
The ongoing COVID situation is frustrating to everyone. We're trying to provide replacements as much as possible. If you have questions about how we can help you understand UCL and what STS has to offer, feel free to send us a meesage: email STS.
In-person Open Days
We follow UCL's advice on opening the campus.
UCL offers undergraduate open days throughout the year, offering admissions talks, tours, information fairs and much more. Details of these can be found at the UCL Open Days page.
Virtual Open Days
For those considering a place for September 2021, STS offers virtual open days. Scheduling will be posted as we fix the dates. These will be on Zoom.
In the meantime, this video is footage from a virtual open day we held for applicants applying for September 2020. This features STS academics describing our two undergradaute BSc degrees, History and Philosophy of Science BSc and Sociology and Politics of Science BSc.
In-person Guided Tours
When the situation allows, UCL offers guided tours of the campus, provided by current UCL students. These tours are aimed at prospective students and their families, and normally last around 90 minutes. Information about the resumption of tours is available on the UCL guided tours website.
Virtual Guided Tours
If you are unable to visit in person, you can take a virtual tour of UCL instead. You'll be able to look inside lecture theatres, laboratories, the Library, Fitness Centre, the Bloomsbury Theatre and the Students' Union. Virtual tours of our Student Houses and Halls of Residence are also available. A list of Student Houses and Halls of Residence detailing prices and locations can be found on the UCL Student Accommodation website.
STS virtual tours aim to introduce our degrees and offer a sample of the tutors and topics you'll explore while at UCL. Watching a video is no substitute for a visit, but we hope to pique your curiosity while answering some basic questions.
