Employers and employment
Whatever you plan to do after your degree, the UCL Careers Service are here to give you guidance and support.
Realise your ambitions
Our team of professional consultants can discuss your options and assist your progress. UCL students are highly regarded and targeted by employers, who value their academic achievements and the skills they gain through extra-curricular activities and work experience.
Every academic department has a specialist careers consultant who helps run a bespoke programme of activities, from talks about career options, to the experiences of former students.
UCL is consistently ranked as one of the world’s very best universities and employers are keen to meet our students to discuss the opportunities they offer. Every year about 550 employers/organisations attend events arranged by the UCL Careers Service, including careers fairs, employer presentations and sector ‘themed weeks’, which may include employer forums, networking events, talks on how to get into the sector and one-to-one advice sessions.
Helping to enhance your capabilities
Our Careers Service and UCLU run a joint programme of skills development activities,
Skills4Work. These involve employers coming onto campus to coach you in areas such as leadership, negotiation and problem solving, while helping you with the application process, from CV writing to mock interviews with feedback.
Just the job – vacancies and information online
JobOnline and International JobOnline are UCL’s job vacancy sites, promoting about 5,000 jobs a year to students at the university, as well as work experience and intern opportunities. We also have a fully resourced and comprehensive careers library.
UCL Talent Bank is run by the Careers Service and puts you in touch with employers who are actively recruiting UCL students in small- and medium-sized organisations for internships and placements or graduate roles. We will coach you through the application and interview process.
Careers without frontiers
For international students, we have specialist careers consultants who manage a multi-topic programme aimed at supporting you when you leave UCL. In addition, we run a series of webinars which enable you to interact with international recruiters without leaving campus.
UCL Careers Service is part of The Careers Group, University of London, and you can also attend events hosted by them.
