Booking Instructions and Venue Details...

For all events, 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.

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

No deposit is required once you've booked and all talks are free to attend.

Can I attend if I haven't booked?

On the day, after all registered students have arrived, space permitting, students that haven't booked will be admitted on a first come first served basis but we cannot guarantee entry.


Location:

Talks are held in various lecture theatres on the main UCL Campus. Exact location details will be provided when booking via My UCL Careers.

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.
