Life at Laws

Student Support

If you feel like you’re in need of some support or advice during your studies, there are lots of resources available to all UCL Laws students that might help.

Academic Mentors

All undergraduate students are assigned an Academic Mentor, who is a full-time member of academic staff and will be able to provide support during your time at UCL Laws.

We attach great importance to the academic mentor system, and as a student you can raise, in confidence any matter – academic or personal – that might be causing you concern. Your mentor will be able to give advice and if necessary, refer you to one of UCL’s student support and welfare services.

University College London Union, UCLU, exists to provide all UCL students with a range of services to support and help develop their skills and interests while they are at UCL.

All students are automatically registered as members of UCLU (although you may choose to opt-out), and the Union is led by ten full-time student sabbatical officers elected by students in an annual cross-campus ballot.

UCLU runs over 200 clubs and societies for students, as well as a number of bars, cafes and shops across campus. They also provide opportunities for students to get involved in campaigning and volunteering, find part-time work and develop your employability skills.
