Raise your Profile

UCL has over 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The Careers Service can offer employers many different ways of raising your company profile amongst these students. You can choose from sponsorship and print or online advertising, to participating in student facing events and engaging with different departments. You may find that you want to utilise a combination of elements in order to maximise your profile amongst the UCL community.


Sponsorship is a key way of "standing out from the crowd" in terms of raising or maintaining your profile amongst the UCL community.

We offer a huge range of sponsorship opportunities covering events, publications, courses, computer equipment, and student services. Each with a different circulation, audience and "shelf-life".

For example, sponsoring a UCL Career Fair increases the value of your attendance at the event and means that your organisation will benefit from a host of additional marketing opportunites. As well as having a premium stand space at the Fair and your company logo on all online and printed Fair publicity, you will be invited to contribute to blog articles and bolt-on events that are provided for students in the lead up to the Fair.

If you would like to discuss the right sponsorship package for you, please call Phil Howe, Employer Services and Events Manager, on 020 7866 3622 or email phil.howe@ucl.ac.uk

Print Advertising

The UCL Careers Service Guide is a colour brochure for students detailing the services and events available to them for the academic year. With a print run of 7,500 it is made available to all penultimate and final year students via their departments. It is handed out at induction talks, given to all new visitors to the Careers Service and attendees at our events, and is available as a PDF download from our website.

The Guide is a fantastic vehicle for employers wishing to raise their profile among UCL students and we offer two advertising options:

A4 Full Colour Display Advert: £895 + VAT
For employers with an existing strong “brand” as a recruiter at UCL to maximise awareness among motivated students.

½ A4 UCL Alumni Profile, with colour logo and photo: £345 + VAT
For employers looking to raise their profile or showcase their opportunities to a new audience.

We offer discounts to registered charities and SMEs for both options.

If you would like to place a display advert or profile in the UCL Careers Service Guide please email the Employer Services & Events Team at careers.events@ucl.ac.uk.

Online Advertising

We offer online advertising within the online catalogue for any employer who books a stand at one of our careers fairs.

Clubs and Societies

UCl has a host of clubs and societies ranging from groups for students of different nationalities to political, campaigning and special interest groups. Many of these clubs and societies will be interested in working with employers to gain sponsorship and input for their services and events. UCL Careers Service is not able to deal with clubs and societies on your behalf but you can contact them directly. You will find contact details of each of the clubs and societies by clicking on the relevant links under the directory on the Clubs and Societies page of the UCL Union website.

Academic Departments

UCL Careers Service recognises that some employers would like to get involved with different academic departments that are relevant for their particular recruitment and sector needs. We understand the drive for some companies to raise their profile amongst a specific group of students at department level and although we do not facilitate employer involvement within the curriculum, we enjoy excellent links with all departments via our network of Careers Liaison Tutors.

If you have an interest in a particular department, a dedicated Careers Adviser will be happy to discuss any opportunities with you.

Please email careers.events@ucl.ac.uk letting us know which departments you are interested in and your message will be passed to the relevant adviser.

Employability Competitions

We are keen to promote employers' own competitions that develop graduate employability, or give our students an insight into commercial challenges.
We will list them on our Competitions webpage, as well as feature any student successes on one of our blogs.

If you would like us to feature your competition please email careers.events@ucl.ac.uk with the key details such as title, overview, deadline and prizes, together with a weblink for students to find out more. 

UCL Careers Service Blogs

In order to ensure UCL students are fully briefed on the changing Graduate Labour Market we are now maintaining a series of blogs reporting news on the range of sectors affecting our students. As an employer you may want to contribute to a blog to target a specific group of students letting them know more about what it is like working in a particular role and the opportunities available.
