Your learning journey at UCL
Time: 11.30-12.30

The education system in your home country may be very different from the one in the UK.

Focus on careers
Time: 17.00-18.00
Venue: Logan Hall, Institute of Education
Preparing an effective job application, writing a CV which will get noticed by employers and developing successful interview skills are the key to getting your dream job. The Focus on careers seminar will give you essential information about finding a job in the UK during and after your studies, and advice about getting ahead in a tough global jobs market.

Getting used to living and studying in a different culture
Time: 15.30-16.30
Venue: Christopher Ingold Auditorium
Whilst coming to study at UCL is a positive and stimulating experience, some of you may find the transition to the UK challenging. Dr Adam Liston (UCL Institute of Neurology) will draw on the experiences of a wide range of our staff and students to help you anticipate both the strengths and challenges of student life in the UK. You will learn how other students have made the transition and have the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences.
