It is the last ditch effort for those sitting the SAT exam, needing entry for admission in 2024.

It is the first for some, a second walk in the park for others.

I wish everyone good luck. Do not forget your tickets, your ID'S, your laptops ( that have been upgraded to Collegeboard's specifications) your calculators, pencils and pens. Get there early.

As for those headed to Dinthill, start out early. Be there by 7:45 a m.


December is your month to finalize your final financial aid paperwork, the FAFSA. Be on the alert.

Give thanks for all the good you received in 2023. Pray for good tidings next year. Thanks to our teachers, parents, staff.

See you next week.


Dear Sandra,

Welcome to the November edition of the UCL Counsellors’ newsletter. This edition is packed full of upcoming activities for you and your students! We also introduce our Human Neuroscience BSc, new for 2024 entry.

Please also note a request from our Undergraduate Admission team that counsellors or applicants who need to submit new information about an application do so directly via the online enquiries form rather than their Student Recruitment contact. This should streamline the enquiry handling process, create a more consistent correspondence record and hopefully result in faster responses times.

Human Neuroscience BSc: new for September 2024

What is it?

· Neuroscience is a very broad and exciting field that is studied at many different levels, from genetics and single cells, to human cognition, behaviour and social interactions.

· The Human Neuroscience BSc studies the human brain and nervous system. Students will learn about how the human brain enables us to perceive the world, how we move, our mental health, how we communicate and how we interact with each other. Students will study and learn about emerging theories into how the brain works and what happens when something goes wrong (such as in dementia).

· Topics include: how memories are formed, how brain cell activity shapes behaviour, how your senses perceive the world, or how the brain controls movement, speech and language. Students could choose to research the causes and novel treatments for conditions like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, stroke or epilepsy.

Who is it for?

· Students currently studying Biology or Psychology at A level (or equivalent), plus one other science from Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Physics or Mathematics.

· Students who want to gain hands-on experience of analysing human brain data to understand broader elements of the brain and nervous system, using cutting-edge techniques and technologies.

· Students interested in careers in a variety of areas, including mental health services, behavioural sciences, bioscience/biomedical innovation and academia.

Where can students learn more?

· Faculty of Brain Sciences online information session: 6 December, 11:00-12:30 (UK time). Book here.
