UCL Careers


Come to an event

Our employer network is keen to meet UCL students, develop your skills, and offer their insight into the world of work. UCL Careers is running its usual programme of employer events virtually, primarily during lunchtimes and evenings to avoid clashing with teaching time.

You can log into myUCLCareers to view our events calendar and register for those you'd like to attend. To be the first to know when new events are added, you can edit your account preferences on myUCLCareers to receive notifications.

Event formats

To help look after the health of the UCL community during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, events will mainly take place remotely / online, (using a variety of online event platforms), as it is safer to do. Please follow the booking guidelines for different event types below for further details. 

Please note that not all of our events are recorded by default. If an event is being recorded it will be made clear on the booking page on myUCLCareers. If notice is not given on the booking page on myUCLCareers, please do not expect to be able to view a recording of the event after the event or at a later date.

UCL Careers welcomes a broad range of employers to our events who are interested in hiring UCL students and graduates.

We believe that students should be given freedom of choice in where they decide to work. Therefore, we do not impose a subjective viewpoint on which companies are allowed to attend our events, as long as they are offering genuine, lawful opportunities that would not bring UCL into disrepute.
