We believe that the fundamental purpose of a university society is to accompany and aid students in their growth and development, from high school graduates to members of the workforce, in a way that academic coursework cannot.
The main tenet of UCL FinTech is really innovation. Whether it’s in finance, technology, entrepreneurship or elsewhere, as soon as a person, institution, or industry starts adopting and advancing innovation, it becomes of interest to us and our members. Whether you are interested in how the stock market is affected by automated market makers, in what Bitcoin is or in how to successfully start some of the UK’s largest unicorns, we can cover it and much more!

Joining FinTech has thus far landed me an internship, allowed me to meet people I never could have, and helped me see the world through a whole new lens; if the society is able to impart a fraction of the benefit I have seen in my life to you, then we will have succeeded in our mission. We hope to see you soon!
