The Slade School of Fine Art at UCL have two opportunities for A level students from less advantaged backgrounds, encouraging them to consider applying to study fine art at degree level.

Summer Challenges are 2 hour, weekly sessions for six weeks. Students will make their way to a meeting point at or near the main UCL campus, and complete a project over the course of the six weeks, before having a celebration event with their family and friends.

Residential Summer Schools are an opportunity for students to come and stay at UCL for five days, attending academic sessions during the day and social events (such as attending a West End show, and a river cruise) in the evenings. Travel to, from and during, and from the residential is covered, and meals are provided. All activities relating to the Summer School are free of charge for applicants.
