There are careers events for students throughout the academic year, sometimes in collaboration with external organisations. These include mentoring events as well as talks from organisations like Facebook and Bloomberg. These events may help you think about future careers and goals. A list of upcoming events, including how to sign up for them, is available on our Events webpage.
King's Leadership & Professional Skills Award
Dates for careers fairs, including the vacation work and internships fair, technology fair, and assessment centre week are available on the Careers events page (KCL log-in required).
The sessions in the careers programme have been scheduled to align with these dates to ensure you are well prepared and make the most of these fairs.
Students are invited to attend the Leadership & Professional Skills Award (KLPSA). This is a programme of events, run in conjunction with employers, designed to help you develop professional and leadership skills and increase your employability in this competitive graduate market. Find out more on the KLPSA SharePoint site (you will need a King's login to access this page).
Find out about all the internship opportunities available to you, including King's Internships (a range of paid internship opportunities on offer exclusively for you) and the King's Global Internships Programme.
While you will learn a lot about biomedical engineering during your degree course, there are other skills which have been built into the teaching regime. For example, project modules will help you with teamwork, time management and problem solving, while other modules may imbue you with, for example, presentation skills. These will prove invaluable to you and contribute to your future career success, so make the most of them.
