Access and Widening Participation

UCL's Access and Widening Participation team offers an exciting range of visits, events and programmes for students in years 5-13 and adult learners who are under-represented in higher education. We also run activities for parents and carers, and teachers and educational professionals.

All of our events and activities are designed to give students a greater insight into UCL's degree programmes and student life. We also seek to raise the aspirations of students from groups who are under-represented at university. 

Our events and activities are funded by UCL's Access and Participation Plan and Widening Participation funds. As such, there are eligibility criteria that all applicants should consider before applying.
