Applying for an internship

Details of the summer internships will be available on UCL Talent Bank from Monday 20 March until 31 March. To apply for an internship, please submit a copy of your CV along with a bespoke cover letter for each role you are interested in. Copy and paste your cover letter into the text box at the application stage.

As the adverts for the roles will only be live for a limited period, it is advisable that you do not wait until the last minute to make your application. There are a variety of free online resources available to help you with your application, as well as applications advice appointments offered by UCL Careers.

How to tell if an internship is part of the scheme:

  • It will be listed in the ‘Featured Jobs’ tab on the left-hand column of the UCL Talent Bank website
  • It will contain the words: “Exclusive to UCL Summer Internship Scheme” in the vacancy title
  • The words: “UCL Internship” will be listed under the vacancy title
  • Search for the internships by selecting ‘UCL Internship’ under the ‘Vacancy Type’ filter on the vacancy search page.

If you are liaising with companies who are keen to take you on as part of this scheme but are not currently registered, please be advised, the deadline for companies to send internship proposals to UCL Careers has now passed. There will be a waiting list, but there is no further guarantee that they well be accepted onto the scheme.
