STS Alumni discuss jobs

What can I do with a degree from STS?

We're proud of our alumni. We've invited some to talk with STS academic staff about their careers after leaving STS, how their degree helped them along, and maybe offer a little advice to those considering STS as a choice for themselves. 

This is a sample. For the full range of interviews, visit the STSUCL soundcloud site. If you're an STS alumni and want to contribute a story for us, please contact the department via email at sts@ucl.ac.uk.
