Sourcing and making the most of internships

At UCL Careers we know that you get work experience through placements and internships so we wanted to give you some information to help you with this.


Work outside the UK

Resources listed in this section will focus on UK-based recruitment, for those seeking work globally.


International students

Information, events, and advice for those looking to stay in the UK after graduation.


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. 


Alumni mentoring

Speaking to UCL graduates who are working in the roles or sectors you're interested in is a great way to get an insider's view on the best places to find relevant vacancies.

Volunteers working with paints


By volunteering you can develop skills and experience through unpaid work experience and shadowing. You also have the chance to give back to causes you believe in.
