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, information sessions, networking events, skills workshops and one-to-one coaching, Sector Themed Weeks are an ideal opportunity for you to learn more about a particular sector from industry professionals, UCL alumni and Careers Consultants to give you a better understanding of what you need to succeed in a particular sector.


The speaker profiles provided will allow you to do some initial research before attending, helping you ask insightful questions at the events themselves.

We recommend that you read about effective networking using the help sheets and in 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 series a regular series of lunchtime talks on effective networking at events as part of our Career Essentials programme which will provide tips and advice on building your professional networks.
