The London Anthropology Day is an annual university taster day for Year 12, 13, FE students, careers advisers and teachers. This year the event will take place on Thursday 2nd July 2015.
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.
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, UCAS Advisers, AimHigher co-ordinators, teachers, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anthropology.
