Full event details

What are the Year 12 UCL Masterclasses?

UCL Masterclasses are online, subject-specific, hour-long sessions for students in Year 12 to get an opportunity to have a taste of university. The masterclasses are designed to introduce you to subjects that can be studied at university. The hour-long sessions will feature a lecture on a specific topic from UCL academics or students. This year, Masterclasses will be hosted online.
The sessions are interactive and we encourage you to engage with the presenters, there is an opportunity at the end to ask questions about the topic presented.

Who can take part?

All eligible applicants who meet at least one of the shortlisting criteria will be offered a place on this programme:

Many of our programmes are over-subscribed so we use the following shortlisting criteria to prioritise young people from the least represented groups:
1. Applicants whose parents or carers did not attend university
2. Applicants who are eligible for free school meals and pupil premium
3. Applicants who live in neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education and high levels of deprivation, where young people are less likely to go on to higher education after they finish school
4. Applicants from groups currently underrepresented in Higher Education and at UCL, i.e. forced migrants, young carers, students estranged from their families, care experienced students and disabled students
5. Applicants from ethnic groups currently underrepresented at UCL, i.e. Black African and Black Caribbean students, White British students who meet our family and neighbourhood criteria and students from Gypsy and Traveller communities

Why take part?


Taking part in the UCL Masterclasses can be a fantastic way to find out more about university subjects. By taking part, you have the opportunity to ask academics and current UCL students questions about studying your chosen subject at university.
