London Anthropology Day (LAD) is a FREE annual university taster day for Year 12, 13, FE students, undergraduate or graduate students interested in Master’s degrees, careers advisers and teachers, organised by the Royal Anthropological Institute.

London Anthropology Day will take place at the British Museum‘s Education Clore Centre in October 2024 (date to be announced shortly). Attendees get to learn what anthropology is about, the types of careers anthropologists do, and find out what it is like to study the subject at university. Attendees are able to learn about the various specialisations of participating universities and ask anthropologists from specific departments questions in live sessions.

The Universities section shows links to the participating universities and more information about the courses they offer. The event is free and open to Year 12, 13 and FE Students, Careers Advisers, teachers, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anthropology.
