Postgraduate Summer Events
Postgraduate Summer Get Active Challenge
Using any app that records your daily activity, upload a weekly screenshot of your activity to the challenge page on the PlayWaze platform. You can take part in any activity that gets you moving whether that be walking, running, cycling, dancing or playing tennis. Be sure to come along to one of our Project Active Postgraduate Summer classes or events!
At the end of the challenge, the 3 participants with the highest overall 'minutes moved' will receive a £10 Nike gift voucher. Each participant to upload daily activity each week for the duration of the challenge will also win a prize.
We will be using the PlayWaze App to host this online challenge. Please download the App, create an account, and join the UCL Active community. From there you will be able to join the Postgraduate Summer Get Active Challenge.
Postgraduate Volunteering Opportunities
In London this summer? So are we! Why not try a bit of volunteering?
We know that postgrads are often looking for flexible and time-light volunteering or for roles using their research skills. Have a look at our Summer Volunteering directory to find one-off or short term volunteering opportunities like festivals, environmental activities, fundraising events and kids’ holiday camps.
The volunteering service have around 300 opportunities available in London with their partner organisations for UCL students. To view all opportunities please visit the Postgrad Volunteering Directory, which also links to a wider selection of opportunities.
