The safety of our students at UCL is of the utmost importance and we want to make sure that you are safe, secure and happy during your time in London.

As a new international student, this may be your first time in London and the UK, and it may even be your first time leaving your home country. We understand that this can be a scary feeling which is why UCL has teamed up with London's Metropolitan Police to deliver in-person international student safety seminars as part of your orientation.

In these safety seminars, we discussed the following topics:

  • Safety around campus;
  • Safety in London;
  • Safety at night;
  • Safety of personal property such as phones and bikes;
  • Online fraud and scams;
  • Hate crimes;
  • Terrorism.

You will have the chance to participate in polls and ask questions anonymously with your mobile phones throughout the presentation to ensure you get the most from this seminars.

There will also be free tea and coffee served so you can learn about personal safety in a little more comfort.
