Careers for Postgraduate Students

The provision of careers information is very important for our postgraduate students and so we work closely with UCL Careers and the Departmental Careers Tutor, Professor Robert Hazell to arrange a number of career events for students throughout the year.

Our past students have gone on to pursue careers within a range of sectors including: Public Administration and Defence, International Bodies and Research and Development.

“In addition to great academic training, the opportunity to live and study in London is an obvious advantage. On top of UCL’s own considerable resources, access to other research institutes, internships and events across the city are a major strength that students on the programme benefit from…Simply put, choosing the MSc Security Studies programme was both one of the easiest and best decisions for my career.”

"In my life I have had four careers, so I know a lot about recruitment, from both sides.

I look forward to sharing that knowledge with you."
