Here is where you can sign-up for BL Families, our Welcome Week peer-mentoring scheme for students at Barts and The London! Current students – 'parents' – are matched with first year students to provide a friendly face and to help new students settle in to university life. 

The scheme is a great way to meet new people and get introduced to life at Barts and The London. Even if you won’t be on campus in September, you can still take part in the scheme.

By signing up to the scheme, you'll be invited to our in-person Welcome Week events: 

Introductions and matching up

Join us on Saturday for an afterparty in the Griff until 2am - buy tickets here

If that’s not for you, we also have a free alcohol-free event taking place in the evening - details TBC

We hope to see you there!

Applications for BL Families 2023 are now open.
