UCL 101: A guide to your first term

You’ve read your department’s website, browsed through countless ‘how-to’ articles, watched Youtube campus tours, and you’ve probably already been to a few of your departmental inductions – well now it’s time to hear first-hand from current and former students about what UCL is really like and how to make the most of student life here.



What to expect from UCL 101: A guide to your first term?

UCL 101 is an in-person talk designed to answer all your questions about starting at UCL. By attending UCL 101, you should feel confident in accessing support services and receive ‘insider tips’ from current students to make the most of your time at UCL. Each UCL 101 is split into distinct sections, covering ‘what I wish I knew before starting at UCL’, general advice and information, and a Q&A section.  We run different sessions for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, tailoring information to your study level.

Undergraduates, check your induction timetable for your allocated slot.
