UCL Careers


Who can use our services

UCL Careers is dedicated to providing support for all current UCL students, researchers, (staff and students), and to recent UCL graduates.

To access any services offered by UCL Careers, you will need UCL ID to prove you're eligible to use them.

  • Current students must provide a valid UCL student ID card. If you have lost this, please get a replacement card from UCL Security Services
  • Researchers (staff and students), have access to all services plus a bespoke programme of activities and must provide a valid UCL student or staff ID card to access these
  • UCL graduates have continued access to our services for up to two years after completing a course at UCL, (based on the course end date shown in PORTICO). Your old student ID card will be accepted during this period*

We also provide support for staff members who work with students on employability or who have careers queries themselves.

Alternative support

If you are not eligible to use UCL Careers, information on alternative services is available.

We also provide bespoke information for prospective UCL students.

*Alternative forms of ID

If you've left UCL and no longer have your old student ID, you will need some alternative proof of having studied at UCL within the last two years.

This will need to include details of the course you were on and the year that you completed it plus your old UPI ID code, (in the format of five letters and two numbers - e.g. UCLID38).

A copy of the PORTICO transcript that you received on completing your course will have this or you could request a formal letter from your old department with this information.

UCL alumni benefits card

This card does not confirm your course completion date so cannot be used to access any services offered by UCL Careers.
