UCL Online Careers Library

Use search tags such as 'working abroad' and/or the name of a country to get listings of resources including:

  • 'Country profile' guides to working overseas
  • Country-specific job sites for some countries - search for the country and 'job site'

Alumni mentoring

Connecting with UCL graduates who are working outside the UK or have international experience is a great way to learn what it's like to live and work outside the UK. Through the UCL alumni office, all UCL students and graduates have access to the UCL Bentham Connect mentoring platform.

Once logged in*, select the 'directory' link and you can then search for contact details of UCL alumni by:

  • UCL Course or department
  • Year of graduation from UCL
  • Current occupation or field of work
  • The country they're now based in

Before making use of this resource, we would recommend reading our Mentoring Guidance for Mentees.

*Note: Any queries relating to the alumni web community should be directed to the UCL alumni office.

Overseas internship agreements and Convention de Stage

Overseas recruiters often require a three-way agreement between the University, the student and themselves, (as the internship provider), which may cover a range of different things depending on the role and the company.

International student employment data dashboard

We are often asked if we hold data on what students from particular countries will go on to do after leaving UCL, and where they do it. Our data dashboard is a way we can share the information we hold with our current students.
