Access and Widening Participation


Supporting your young D/deaf person's journey to university

It is with huge regret that we inform you that we have decided to cancel the above event. In light of the rapidly progressing situation with Covid-19, we feel it is only right to prioritise the health and well-being of our staff, students and visitors. We were very much looking forward to running this novel event so are terribly disappointed to have to take this decision.

We hope to reschedule the event sometime in the near future and will be in touch with you then… we’ll make it bigger and better to compensate! If you have any queries do get in touch with Beth.

Join us on Tuesday 7 April, 4pm-7.30pm at UCL for an evening information session which will provide a valuable insight into how to ensure your young person can access university, and to understand the support on offer once they arrive. The programme is being delivered in collaboration with The Deafness Cognition and Language Centre (DCAL), based at UCL. You can find out more about DCAL on the UCL website

We will host a panel discussion with a Q&A, including current and former D/deaf students from UCL and we will have presentations on key information including UCAS applications, student finance and disability support. 

The event is free to attend and suitable for parents/carers of young D/deaf people aged between 14-19.

BSL-English interpreting and speech-to-text reporting will be available, please let us know if you have additional access requirements when completing your application. 

We hope you can join us then. To sign up to the event, please complete this short online form.
