For PhD Students
We are now using an online booking system for appointments to see the Careers Consultant for Researchers . You can book a week in advance and also cancel your appointment online if you can no longer attend. Appointments can no longer be booked via the Careers front desk.
Your username is your QMUL email address e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first time you use this system, you will need to reset your password. The email to do this will be sent to the email address that you provided the college when you first enrolled (not necessarily your QMUL address) so please check all your email accounts.
On the ‘Make an Appointment’ option choose: QMUL PhD/Postdoc Appointment
For Postdoctoral Researchers
If you are a Postdoctoral Researcher that has not had a Careers appointment before, you may need to be registered before you book an appointment. Please call the Careers and Enterprise Centre on 020 7882 8533 to register your details in the first instance. You will be given a username and password with which you can then book an appointment following the system above.
Please don’t forget to cancel the appointment if you can’t make it! If you don’t you will be stopping another PhD Student or Postdoctoral Researcher from getting careers support.
We hope you will find this system easier to work with than the old one, and looking forward to seeing you at an appointment soon!
