UCL Summer Challenge and Summer Schools

UCL Summer Challenge and Summer Schools are an opportunity for year 12 students to participate in the UCL Slade School of Fine Art this summer:

Summer Challenge

The Summer Challenge is a set of academic evening courses for Year 12 students. The courses give a realistic taster of university study, and allow students to explore subjects of interest. Summer Challenge develops independent research, academic writing and presentation skills – all essential tools for university life. There are 13 courses to choose from, including ‘Drawing Upon Observation’ details and the application form can be found here: www.ucl.ac.uk/summerchallenge

Please note: interested students will need to apply via the online application form, which can be found on the link above.

For any questions, please contact the Summer Challenge team: challenge@ucl.ac.uk

Applications are needed by 24 April 2015.


Summer Schools

The summer schools are intensive programmes lasting up to five days, and can be either residential (where students stay in UCL halls of residence) or non-residential (where students are expected to make their way to and from UCL each day). There are 15 summer schools to choose from, including ‘Introduction to Studio Practice’. Details and how to apply can be found here: www.ucl.ac.uk/wp/post16/summerschools

Please note: interested students will need to apply via the online application form, which can be found on the link above.

Eligibility: Students must be attending a non-selective state school in the UK, and priority will be given to students who meet one or more of the following criteria:

Will be the first generation in their family to attend university;
Come from neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education;
Are in, or have lived under local authority care;
Have parents from non-professional occupations;
Have been eligible for free school meals within the past five years;
Are from an ethnic group which is currently underrepresented at UCL.
