The Programme Director of the new BASC degree course at UCL, Carl Gombrich, visited students at CATS College Canterbury to talk about the exciting new course being launched.

The new course links subjects and ideas in exciting ways and is ideal for students looking to develop their skills in a broad way in a fast moving modern world.

Students doing A levels would be required to have specific subject combinations but all IB students were also able to apply. Carl indicated that international students applying from CATS College would be exempt from GCSE requirements as they are far more interested in subject grades at A level or IB.

Carl was very interested in the work students at the College had been doing as part of the CATS College Leadership Award and welcomed applications from students who are aiming high and who would like to get involved in this exciting new course.

BASC students chose to major in one of four pathways: cultures, health and environment, science and engineering or societies and alongside these pathways students will study specially designed core modules created to enhance their understanding of how each different branch of knowledge interrelates. The course takes three years to complete and also contains an option of a fourth “Study Abroad” year.

Principal, Jonathan Ullmer said, "It was a pleasure for so many of our students to be able to talk with Carl and explore their hopes and ideas for the future and seeing how UCL could help them achieve their dreams. Every week leading universities visit CATS College in Canterbury to meet with students and help inspire them with their university choices and we are grateful to such a wide range of UK universities with whom we have such powerful links."

Carl will be visiting the College again later in the year to give students further opportunities to talk about the course at UCL.
