First Generation Society
University College London
The society’s aim is to create an inclusive and supportive environment for students and alumni of the first generation in their family to enter higher education. We’re helping to ensure the welfare of a portion of UCL’s student body that often feels marginalised and unwelcome. Our activity supports students through an online community, regular events (pastoral, social and skills-focused) and we are working with UCL’s Widening Participation team in relation to support their interventions.
We organise life skills workshops, to help students build on the key skills outside of lectures, networking events with first-gen alumni and career insights.
