The full programme is also repeated in June if you're unable to attend earlier in the year.

How to prepare...

The Help With... section of our website suggests a range of resources on all of the topics covered in the QuickFix! programme. 

Using these in advance will help you get more out of the workshops.

Late Arrivals, Cancellations and No Shows...

For all events, please aim to arrive 5 minutes before the published start time. If you arrive late, the facilitator reserves the right to refuse entry so that you don't disrupt the event for other attendees who arrived on time.

Cancellations:

Talks are popular and usually fully booked. If you know you'll be unable to attend, you can cancel your booking through your My UCL Careers account at any time up until midnight on the day before the talk takes place to allow another student to book in your place.

If you don't cancel in advance or don't turn up to a Talk you're booked to attend, we will record a "No Show" which may affect your future bookings for other events or use of our services.

After the Event / Seminar Slides

Where relevant / possible, any materials relating to a particular talk or workshop will be made available to download here within a week of the event taking place.

The relevant Help With... section of our website also suggests a range of resources on all of the topics covered in the QuickFix! programme if you haven't used them already. You'll also find information on similar events that you might find useful plus get details on how to book a 1-1 appointment to discuss any queries in more detail.

Details of future workshops will be available shortly.


To receive notifications about these and other events, make sure you register with UCLAlert!

For all Masters Talks, you MUST book in advance to guarantee a place. This enables us to monitor attendance levels and ensure that talks are more effective for those attending.

  • Bookings are made and managed via your "My UCL Careers" account.
  • If using this for the first time, please read the My UCL Careers Instructions carefully before trying to log in.
  • Booking for each Talk will open TWO weeks before the first talk in the series takes place and will close when each talk is fully booked or, at the latest, at midnight on the day before the talk takes place.
  • No deposit is required once you've booked online and all talks are free to attend.

Can I attend if I haven't booked?

Cancellations can be made at any time up to midnight the day before a talk takes place so, if you're unable to book now because a talk is full, you should check your My UCL Careers account regularly in case places do become available.

If not, on the day of the talk, after all registered students have arrived, space permitting, students that haven't booked will be admitted on a first come first served basis but please be aware that we cannot always guarantee entry to those who haven't booked.
