Recruit a UCL Student

There are a number of ways that you could recruit a UCL Student. For a simple overview of these please click on each of the headings below.


Advertise UK or International Graduate or Graduate Track opportunities (including Internships and Work Experience) to UCL students, or to students at all colleges within The Careers Group, University of London (including UCL).
Where job descriptions are 25 words or under, the entry is free, but for more than 25 words the entry will cost £149 (+VAT).

Before posting a vacancy for the first time, you must set up an account by following the 'Advertise Now' link below. You will then be able to place, edit and delete your own vacancies online.

Advertise career opportunities through targeted emails to UCL students/graduates, or to students/graduates from all colleges within The Careers Group, University of London (including UCL). Targeting criteria for UCLAlert include degree discipline, preferred career option, degree class and year of study.

Email by Nationality

We recommend UCL Alert as the primary means of sending information about vacancies or careers events to UCL students.

However, If you wish to target by nationality, you can send an email to ALL UCL students of any particular nationality at a cost of £146 (+VAT).

This charge is to send the same message to as many nationalities as you wish. For example: you could send the same text to Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwanese nationals at UCL for £146 (+VAT), but sending different messages to these three nationalities would cost £438 (+VAT).

Before sending any message to students of a particular nationality you must either place the same information on UCL International Job Online, or send a hard copy for display in UCL Careers Service. This is so that relevant students of other nationalities are not excluded. To arrange an international mailing, please email careers.events@ucl.ac.uk.

To check the number of non-UK domiciled UK students from a particular country, please refer to this table supplied by UCL Registry.

Placements and Internships

UCL have a number of students looking for paid internships and work experience during the summer months and part-time during term-time.  If you have relevant opportunities for our students please use our UCL Talent Bank shortlisting service or UCL JobOnline advertising service.

For JobOnline please register and upload your details.

We also have a number of life science PhD students that are required to undertake a three month placement as part of their academic programme.  More details.  If you are interested in hosting one of these students, please  contact the Placements & Vacancies Manager, Rochelle Symons.
