UCL Summer Challenge is a programme of subject specific courses for Year 12 student attending state schools in or near London, whose parents have not been to university, and who are academically high achieving.

Drawing from observation has been an age-old concern that has stimulated the imagination of many artists throughout history. Held in the unique studios of the Slade this 6-week evening course offers a rich starting point to explore the fundamental concerns of perceptual drawing and aims to introduce you to the various aspects of drawing from observation and its uses. The course explores a diverse set of approaches and strategies that will stimulate debate and engender an expanded sense of the possibilities of working from direct observation. You will be encouraged to develop a critical awareness when looking, thinking and speaking about drawing. By the end you will develop a greater visual confidence and appreciation of the subject.

What are the benefits of taking part in Summer Challenge?
Summer Challenge is an impressive achievement to include on your UCAS personal statement. As a Summer Challenge participant, you will develop your independent research, critical thinking, public speaking and academic writing skills - all essential for university. You will also gain a detailed insight into the UCL student experience and the range of degree programmes on offer, and have reading access to the UCL libraries until mid September 2015.

Furthermore, Summer Challenge participants who complete the programme will have the chance to apply for a space on our personal statements clinic in Autumn of Year 13 and the opportunity to apply for the UCL London Opportunities Scholarship, worth £4,000 per year of undergraduate study.

When and where?
Summer Challenge runs for six weeks at UCL's campus in Bloomsbury during June and July, on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings, from 4.30pm – 6.30pm.
