UCL Introductory Programme

A programme offering new students an intellectually enriching introduction to degree-level study and UCL, creating a sense of place and belonging before they arrive.

The UCL Introductory Programme will provide students with an academic, pastoral, social and physical orientation of UCL.

The online element of the programme centres on a number of ‘objects’ in and around UCL. By telling the stories behind these objects, with the help of engaging interactive multimedia, it aims to provide students with a feeling of place and belonging before they arrive.

UCL Education Strategy 2016-21 commits us to developing the Introductory Programme as one of a series of initiatives to personalise student support, and to complement the review of UCL Transitions Programme.

The Introductory Programme will be piloted in Autumn 2019 with the aim of rolling it out to all new undergraduates in summer 2020.

The project is run by the Office of the Vice-Provost (Education and Student Affairs).
