School of Public Policy Careers for Postgraduate Students

Your career goals after studying with us

Graduate 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.”
Bryce Campbell, MSc Security Studies, 2009-2010.
“Needless to say, the knowledge and skills acquired during my MSc Public Policy degree have been incredibly useful in my work and they have given me the opportunity to pursue my interests in international development at the professional level. My thanks to all the SPP staff and good luck to all the new and current students.”
Martina Vojtkova, MSc Public Policy, 2009-2010.
“The knowledge I gained during the course of my Master’s, and exposure to the different dimensions of development, including the importance of sound governance structures, were fundamental in shaping my professional career so far. I received excellent guidance from lecturers and tutors, and would encourage all SPP students to make the most of their time at UCL.”
Mariam El-Azm, MSc Global Governance and Ethics, 2009–2010.
"Overall, I feel like my MSc has given me a crucial advantage at the outset of my international career. I’m proud to be a graduate of University College London’s School of Public Policy. The good names of UCL and SPP will open doors for you, and give you the confidence to walk through them.”
Dylan White MSc IPP 2010-11.

"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."
