Who are The London Universities Group?

The London Universities Group is a collaboration between six universities that are all members of the University of London – City, Goldsmiths, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, SOAS and St George’s.

Between them, these universities cover a wide variety of subjects including business, creative subjects (art, design, media, music, theatre), engineering, healthcare (medicine, dentistry, nursing), humanities, languages, law, psychology, sciences (chemistry, physics, biology) and the social sciences.

What to expect during the webinar?

The event will be hosted by UniTasterDays.com and will provide a one-stop opportunity for you to find out more about each of the six London institutions present at the event- as well as key areas of university guidance, including:

  • The benefits of studying in London
  • The differences between school and university
  • Student life
  • Student finance

Delivered as a webinar, only the UniTasterDays event host and university event speakers will be visible to participants during the event. You will not need a webcam or a microphone – but there will be a typed Q & A running throughout – with over 12 university experts on hand to answer your questions. A keyboard would therefore be handy!

Full topics and speaker profiles can be found on this page too.

What do I need to do to book?

The events are free to attend – you just need to book a place in advance through one of the booking links below.

Content will be different for each event, based on if you are currently living and studying in London. So please take a moment to ensure you select the correct one!
