Placements and Internships

‘The UCL Internship programme provided our company with an excellent intern with skills beyond her level of education, we could not be more pleased with how the internship turned out. The student excelled at all her tasks and her professional development during her internship was great to see. She was easy to work with and was able to take initiative and work independently which is crucial in a small company.’ Aktis Strategy


UCL have a number of students looking for paid internships during the summer months and part-time during term-time. We have dedicated support for the following programmes:

PhD/Post-Doc Level Internships

If you have internship vacancies suitable for PhD / Post-Doc researchers, we would particularly like to hear from you and will prioritise promoting these vacancies.  If you wish, we can restrict these opportunities just to these levels of students, so that you are targeting those who are highly skilled in data collection, analysis, making recommendations and problem solving.  Internships can be of any duration and up to 12 months and can be either full or part-time. 

If you would like to discuss this further, please email Sylwia Wasiak-Rakowska - s.wasiak@ucl.ac.uk

If you have opportunities for students from other programmes please email employers@ucl.ac.uk
