Each forum will be held 5.30-7.30pm and will involve a panel
discussion showcasing various employer

You will have the opportunity to pose questions to the panel during sessions or to individual employers at the end of a session.

Introductory Seminar For the UCL BBSRC Placement Programme 2013.
Date: November (TBC)
UCL Careers Service
The BBSRC will be introducing a requirement for all its future PhD registrants to undergo a period of formal placement in an organisation that is not directly related to the student’s research area. The aim of such internships will be to help research students develop a range of essential transferable skills and experience that will benefit their future careers, either within academia or beyond, and aid the process of career choice on graduation.
In preparation for this, UCL is conducting
a pilot placement programme for current BBSRC sponsored students. The placement will last for a period of up to 12 weeks. To
provide you with more information on what such placements could involve, and
what you can expect to get out of them, we will be running a briefing seminar in November. We will publish more information about this in due course.
Please note: This Programme is only open to current BBSRC – sponsored research students so only BBSRC research students can attend the seminar.
