What happens in the webinars?

The UCL International Student Support team hold these webinars for new international students who will be coming to UCL and/or London for the 1st time. In these webinars, a member of the International Student Support team and a current UCL student will be available via video chat to help you with a wide variety of questions you may have regarding life at UCL or life in the UK.

We do this via video chat because we want to provide as much information and support, before you arrive. It may be that you want to know about the study/life balance for a student at UCL. Perhaps you're interested in working whilst you study. Or you could be wondering about making friends in a new country. Whatever your question, we'll do our best to give you the best and most honest answer.


Dates and times of webinars

The International Student Orientation Webinars are held:

  • 5 weeks before Term 1 starts for students starting in September
  • 1 week before Term 2 starts for students starting in January   

How to join

New students will be sent information on the webinars when they are available to sign up for. You will then click on the webinar date and time that suits you. You will then need to register for your webinar on the ticketing system, Eventbrite.

When registering, please use your UCL email address if you have received this. If not, use your personal one. After you've registered, you will then receive a confirmation email with the Microsoft Teams webinar link.


How can I ask questions in the webinars? 

We know that feeling. You're on a video chat with 101 other people and it can be a little scary to ask a question in front of everyone. What if they don't understand me? What if the question sounds silly? Well, your question probably isn't silly at all and many other new students will be thinking the same thing. Trust us, we do this a lot.

However, we still understand these feelings, so we will ask that you submit your questions beforehand via our online form which will be shared below closer to the date of the webinars.
