Access and Widening Participation


Activities for teachers

UCL has long been committed to working with schools, teachers and other educational organisations in order to better enable fair access to life-changing higher education opportunities.

Working with teachers and other educational professionals within schools is integral to the success of our work. Teachers are key partners in raising awareness of UCL and  have a crucial role to play in facilitating fair access to opportunities and helping to improve social mobility.

We offer professional support, working with experts from the UCL Institute of Education to ensure that CPD opportunities are innovative and practical for every stage of a teacher's career. 

Eligibility and funding

Our activities for teachers and educational professionals are free to attend, and aimed at teachers working in non-selective state secondary schools and colleges. Priority will be given to those that have the lowest progression rates to selective higher education. 

Funding for school cover costs is available, and accommodation for delegates who are not within a commutable distance to London can also be provided. 

Teacher Summer School

Teacher Conference

The UCL Teacher Conference offers participating teachers the chance to engage with staff at UCL and to get the most current information about applying to competitive universities. Participants have the option to stay overnight in university accommodation if they are situated too far away to commute.
