Discover UCL – Summer School

End date: 16th August 2017

Location: University College London, London, WC1E 6BT

The Discover UCL Summer School is an award–winning programme exclusively for D/deaf and hard of hearing students in Years 11 and 12. The summer school is a three-day residential programme that gives you the chance to find out more about UCL through staying in university halls of residence in the heart of central London, and by taking part in fun, practical and academic sessions at UCL.

About the Summer School:
During the summer school, you will be able to take part in academic taster sessions and hands-on workshops. You will also learn important information about applying to university and the support available to D/deaf and hard of hearing students who choose to go to university. You will also meet D/deaf and hard of hearing graduates who will tell you what you need to know about university, and what they are up to now. In the evening, we have fun activities in London! UCL will provide BSL interpreters throughout the programme and Palantypists for the academic sessions to ensure that you have communication support during the summer school.
