How can I prepare for a Themed Week?

Speaker profiles will be provided for each online event, allowing you to do some initial research before attending. This will help you ask insightful questions during the events themselves.

We also run a regular series of lunchtime talks on effective networking at events as part of our Career Essentials programme which provide tips and advice on building your professional networks.

How can I book or register my interest for an event?

Full programmes are published two weeks before the start of each Themed Week and can be found on our website.

Bookings will also open at this time.

All events must be booked in advance through your myUCLCareers account.

To receive email alerts about upcoming events you should update your myUCLCareers ’email preferences’ to register for ‘Event update‘ emails.

I missed last term’s themed week. What can I do?

We have a Themed Week Archive where you’ll find resources such as panel recordings and blogs from previous themed weeks. Make sure to check in regularly for updates!

We look forward to ‘meeting’ you at an event soon!
