Themed Weeks

During the Autumn and Spring Terms, we run a programme of 'Sector themed' weeks covering a variety of industry sectors which are popular with UCL students.

What to expect and how to prepare

With a mix of panel discussions, presentations, and skills workshops, Themed Weeks are an ideal opportunity for you to learn more about a particular sector. Hear from industry professionals, UCL alumni and Careers Consultants to develop your understanding of what you need to succeed in these areas of work.


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

We recommend that you read about effective networking using the help sheets and resources in our library. You can make use of the sector-specific resources suggested in the 'Exploring options' section of our site.

We will 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.
