Employers and employment
Whatever you plan to do after your degree, we are here to help you ‘Find your Future’ through advice and support. That’s why around 90%* of UCL undergraduate students enter work or further study within six months of graduating.
Realise your ambitions
We know you will invest considerable time and money undertaking a degree at UCL, and do so to boost your career or undertake further study in the UK or abroad. We take your future ambitions seriously and will help you realise them through individual and group activities.
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 previous students and alumni.
UCL is constantly ranked as one of the world’s very best universities and employers are keen to meet our students and discuss the opportunities they offer. Every year about 790 employers/organisations attend events arranged by UCL Careers, 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
UCL Careers and UCLU run a joint programme of skills development activities known as 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
UCL JobOnline is our very own online jobs board, promoting about 2,000 jobs a week to students at the university, as well as work experience and intern opportunities. We also have a fully resourced and comprehensive career library and online resources.
UCL Talent Bank is run by UCL Careers 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. UCL Careers will help 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 while you study at UCL. In addition, we run a series of webinars which enable you to interact with international recruiters without leaving campus.
