UCL is excited to be hosting our Undergraduate Open Days taking place on the 28 and 29 June 2019. We are keen to recruit UCL undergraduate students from across all subject areas and years of study to support us on these days.

The Open Days are events targeted at Year 12 students who are considering studying at UCL in the future. The event itself will give visitors and their parents the chance to attend admissions talks and taster sessions, talk to academics and students, find out about the students’ union and student support services, visit the university, and much more. I am sure that you all remember attending an open day when deciding where to apply, and may even have attended one of UCL’s events!


Duties and responsibilities

The roles involved in this are varied, but the campus is split up into different ‘zones’ with Student Helpers being assigned tasks to do within their area.

The main duties include helping visitors with questions and directions, chatting with guests on the day and following general instructions from UCL staff. You may be needed to manage queues into and out of Lecture Theatres and scanning visitors’ tickets when they arrive at their talks.

Skills and experience

We are looking for UCL students, ideally undergraduate students currently studying at UCL from all years and subject areas.

Prior experience working at Open Days is helpful but not essential. A positive mindset and a pro-active attitude would be desirable.

You will need to be available for both Open Days from 0800-1600 and for one of the following Briefing Sessions (which you will be remunerated for):

  • 18th June 2019 - 2-3pm
  • 19th June 2019 - 2-3pm
  • 20th June 2019 - 2-3pm

You will get paid for the Briefing Session and can be expected to be working a minimum of 5 hours and a maximum of 9 hours per Open Day.

To be considered for this role, you must update your Unitemps Profile to include your university details. This includes, your Subject, Level of Study and Projected Course End Date.
