Next Steps

  • Complete Enrollment: Let's make sure you've completed all you need to, to successfully complete your enrollment onto the programme! 
  • UCL Expand In-Person Introductory Day: Get ready for the big day! Let's make sure you're all ready to come to UCL on the 14 February. We will also give you some more clarity on what you can expect from the day. 
  • Get Excited: Roll up your sleeves and dive into the UCL Expand SharePoint Site. Read about your Taster Presenter, take a look at what you can find out about your subject strand, and have a peak at what our library team have put together for you. 

1. Personal Details Form

  • Make sure your parent/guardian has signed your personal details form and you have successfully submitted the form with this added
  • Make sure all information on your submitted personal details form is accurate and correct.

2. Are you expected to be in school on either of the in-person event dates?

  • We’ve tried our best to schedule these in-person events during half-term, however not all schools in the UK have the same holidays as others.

    If you are expected to be in school on the 14th of February and/or the 27th of March, please speak to your school staff and parent/guardian in good time so that you can arrange the day off. Both the UCL Expand Welcome Event & the UCL Expand Graduation Event last the duration of the day (10:00 - 16:00).

    We understand that getting time off school to come to campus might be difficult, so if you need to, please use the button below to request a letter to show your parent/guardian/teacher. This letter will explain a bit more about the programme, and the importance of attending the in-person events

3. Travel to/from UCL Bloomsbury Campus

If UCL is not organising your travel to/from UCL Bloomsbury Campus for the in-person events, it is your responsibility to ensure that this is booked and paid for. 
If UCL is organising your travel, it is still your responsibility to organise your own journey to/from your local station. Please also be prepared to collect your physical train tickets from your local station.
