London Anthropology Day (LAD) is a FREE annual university taster day for Year 12, 13, FE students, careers advisers and teachers. #LAD2017 will take place on Thursday 29 June 2017 from 10am – 5.30pm.  

Booking for LAD2017 workshops has now closed, but it is not too late to take part; we can book you in on the day. Please arrive at 10am on 29th June 2017 at the Clore Education Centre, British Museum – we look forward to seeing you there!

The event is held at the British Museum‘s Education Clore Centre. On the day, participants get to learn what anthropology is about, the types of careers anthropologists do, and gain hands-on experience of what it is like to study the subject at university. Check out the 22 universities that are participating in 2017, compare their undergraduate anthropology courses and read the 2017 event programme.

Lecturers from universities across Britain provide interactive workshops on biological and social anthropology. Students are able to learn about the various specialisations of participating universities, explore the museum’s ethnographic galleries and interact with volunteers who are currently studying anthropology.

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.
