Lunch Hour Lectures

Lunch Hour Lectures are an opportunity for anyone to sample the exceptional research work taking place at UCL, in bite sized chunks. Speakers are drawn from across the university, and lectures frequently showcase new research and recent academic publications.

Lunch Hour Lectures take place 13:15 - 13:55, are free, require no pre-booking, and are open to anyone on a first-come, first-served basis.

All lectures are streamed live online and can be watched by clicking on the Watch Lunch Hour Lectures online link above. Lectures can also be watched from one week after the event on our YouTube channel where all lectures will be subtitled. Alternatively, lectures can also be downloaded from iTunes U and from SoundCloud.

The lectures take a break over the summer, but watch this space for more information about our Autumn programme, or follow us on twitter for the most up to date news: @ucllhl
