UCL SoM is set to host an interactive weeklong summer school for Yr 12 students

UCL School of Management is set to host an engaging and interactive weeklong summer school for Year 12 students in London and its surrounding areas.​

Aspiring young minds are invited to join us at our Canary Wharf hub for an immersive experience exploring how businesses can make positive contributions to society while tackling real-world challenges through innovative solutions. 

The summer school will start on Monday 29 July 2024 and promises an engaging journey. Participants will be introduced to a genuine business challenge, working in small teams alongside student ambassadors and UCL academics to craft innovative solutions. The week culminates in a presentation session where teams will receive valuable feedback from an expert panel. Beyond classroom sessions, students will have the opportunity to embark on eye-opening visits to the Felix Project and the Canary Wharf Eden Project. 

Additionally, select participants will have the chance to apply for and undertake a weeklong work experience with the Canary Wharf Group upon completion of the summer school.
