"It is very useful to ask questions and get the answers I need, especially for international students who are not familiar with pursuing career options in the UK."
you’re an international student hoping to pursue a career in the UK, planning
to return home for work or explore options anywhere internationally, we can give you
the dedicated support you need.The different Help With... sections of our site will provide information on support available which will be relevant to all students but the sections below highlight support that is more targeted towards International Students.
Along with UCL International Office and UCLU Advice and Welfare, we run many talks, workshops and events throughout the year to improve your understanding of what’s needed in the UK job market. Whether it’s writing effective applications or pursuing postgraduate study, you’ll find our talks hold all the information you need. We also run events focusing on specific countries to support you in finding work outside of the UK.
