Employability

Your graduate degree constitutes an important step on your route to achieving your ambitions. Whatever your plans, study at UCL is designed to equip you not only with the academic knowledge associated with your chosen qualification, but also with skills for life.

Vital skills such as organising your ideas and time, analysing information, communicating complex concepts, appreciating and assimilating different perspectives, and applying theory to real-world circumstances are built into our programmes and supported by training.
