London Anthropology Day will take place at the British Museum‘s Education Clore Centre on Thursday 30th June 2022.

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 event is free and open to Year 12, 13 and FE Students, Careers Advisers, teachers, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anthropology.

You can also take a look at our Guide to Participating Universities in our Universities tab to get an overview of anthropology courses at universities. 

To see what the day is like and find out more about anthropology, take a look at our LAD Gallery. Photographs of RAI education outreach activities are also available on our Flickr page: www.flickr.com/photos/raieducation
