Effective public engagement informs research, enhances teaching and learning, and increases our impact on society. The Public Engagement Unit at UCL works to make engagement a core part of the work of the University, and of the student experience. Staff from the Public Engagement Unit are on hand to provide advice at all stages of a project, and produce useful guidelines for planning and evaluation. They support staff and students involved in activities such as:

    • Telling public groups about our work
    • Supporting communities with our expertise
    • Nurturing a society in which the next generation want to take part in research, teaching and learning
    • Letting people outside the University contribute their research and knowledge to our programmes.
    • Taking part in dialogue about the direction of our research and teaching
    • Creating knowledge in collaboration with communities and interest groups outside the University

So now it’s over to you! Do you have a good idea that connects the public with your research or teaching? If you’re a member of staff or a postgraduate research student at UCL,  apply for a Beacon Bursary and see your idea become a reality.
