Life After UCL

This strange but hopeful moment was an opportunity to rediscover our connections to each other, and to the world beyond UCL. As we approached the end of the academic year, it was a challenge to know what came next – so UCL was there to support you!

During these sessions the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, the Faculty of Social & Historical Sciences and School of Slavonic and East European Studies joined UCL Careers and Alumni Relations to discuss the benefits and services available to UCL graduates: careers support, access to mentors, and much more. 

We also heard from a panel of UCL A&H, SHS and SSEES alumni who reflected on their career journeys. They shared their valuable insights, experiences and top tips to help us get ahead.


Languages for the Future 

Studying languages at UCL and thinking about your future career? Languages graduates are highly valued by employers for their linguistic and cultural knowledge, and for their range of transferable skills.

We heard from a panel of UCL alumni who studied languages at UCL, found out about their career journeys and discovered the types of careers available to language graduates. We discovered what they did and how they got there - and we picked up some unique tips for getting into a variety of industries after graduation.

“Perhaps the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company.” 
Dr Rachel Naomi Remen
