Access and Widening Participation


Work with us

The Access and Widening Participation Office offers many opportunities for UCL students to get involved with our work.

Our programmes could not run without dedicated students offering their time and expertise.

Working with us is a great way for you to develop transferable skills, such as communication, leadership and self-confidence, and to get involved in the local community. You'll also have the chance to meet other UCL students from a wide range of courses and backgrounds, and have a lot of fun!

Many of our projects work specifically with school students from under-represented groups. We aim to increase the proportion of students from state schools, from low socio-economic backgrounds and from neighbourhoods with low rates of participation in higher education. 

Most of the school students that we work with are from non-selective state schools and have no family history of higher education, and many are from ethnic minority backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from current UCL students from similar backgrounds to these school students, as they can be powerful role models.
