Upcoming Events

UEL’s Outreach and Access Team have put together an exciting series of webinars for your students. These will be open to Years 9 – 11 and will take place on Thursdays at 10.00am for a maximum of 45 mins. The series will run from Mid-May to the end of July 2020.

We will be using Microsoft Live Events to run these so there is no need for students to sign up, they just need to click on the link to join. These are interactive (comms are through a Q&A box) but students will not share any personal details or visuals via web cam in order to limit safeguarding risks.
