In spring 2016 we launched the Student Rep Programme for students studying within England, Scotland and Ireland with UCEAP. Student Reps act as a link between students and UCEAP London Study Centre staff by organising fun group activities throughout the term for other UCEAP students at their Host Universities. At these events, students are able to reconnect after orientation and give feedback on their study abroad experience. The Student Rep Programme provides students with the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and receive support from their fellow UC students when they are far from home.
My role as a UCL Student Representative for the UCEAP was an extremely rewarding and beneficial experience. It allowed me to feel more at home in the UK with such a strong home base with fellow UC students, as well as feel a stronger sense of belonging to UCL. – Amy Nutley, Student Rep at University College London (UCL)
