UCL Careers



myUCLCareers is an online portal enabling current students, recent graduates and researchers, (staff and students), to engage with some of our services.

Once logged in you can:

  • Check availability for and book one-to-one careers guidance or application/interview coaching appointments with members of our team. (For an overview of different appointment types offered, please read our 'Get one-to-one advice' page).
  • View our forthcoming events calendar and manage your event bookings with us. (For an overview of different event types offered, please read our 'Come to an event' page).
  • Access our job vacancy board and search for part-time work, internships, placement opportunities and graduate-level opportunities from employers targeting students at UCL.
  • Set your personal preferences by updating your profile to receive daily or weekly email digests for new opportunities and events according to your areas of interest.
  • Sign-up to our Careers Newsletter to stay informed of our upcoming opportunities, events and features from employers and staff.

Note: UCL staff who provide support for students on making the best use of our services are also able to log in for 'read only' access to the system.

Please read the relevant section below about how to access your account and where to get support if you're having difficulties.

Current students

Select "Student login" and use your standard UCL single sign-on user ID and password. If you don't know your user ID or are having problems with your password, please visit the UCL ISD website.

As your course ends, you should continue to log in as a current student until you see this 'Permission denied' error.

This simply means you no longer have current student status on PORTICO and should follow the instructions for recent graduates below.

Recent graduates

If you completed a course at UCL within the past two years* and are no longer studying here, select the "Alumni login and registration" button.

For first time use as a graduate you should:

  • Click the "Reset Alumni password" link and enter your old UCL email address. You will then receive an email explaining how to set up a new password for your myUCLCareers account.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to register a non-UCL email address to log in to myUCLCareers, click the "Alumni sign up" button and follow the instructions. To complete this process, you will need to know your student "UPI" Code which is on the front of your old UCL ID card. (The format is 5 letters and 2 numbers e.g. UCLID38 and it can also be found on your PORTICO profile if you have lost your old ID card).
If can't find this code, please contact us to ask about setting up graduate access to your account.
*For more information on careers support for graduates, please see our access to services information.

Research staff

If you are employed by UCL as a member of research staff, (including postdoctoral research staff), you will need to register your details with us to set up a myUCLCareers account.

Select the Research Staff button and you will have two options:

  1. For first time use, you will need to select the "Register" option. All UCL staff have a UCL user ID and password issued by ISD as detailed on their website. When prompted to create a username for your myUCLCareers account, you MUST use your email address in the format: "userid@ucl.ac.uk" and then complete the other details on the registration form.
  2. Once you have received email notification that your registration has been approved, click the "Log in" button and use your user ID and main UCL password to log in to your account.

Non-research staff

If your role at UCL involves promoting specific services provided by UCL Careers to your students, and you feel it would be useful to be able to view things like our events calendar or jobs board or to be able to monitor the day to day appointment availability that your students have access to, you can request 'read only' access to myUCLCareers.

Simply email careers.marketing@ucl.ac.uk with your job title, UCL userid and details of how you work with students before logging in below once your account has been created.

Careers support for non-research staff

Other UCL staff members, (non-academic / professional services), may have access to certain services provided by UCL Careers but won't be able to book these through the myUCLCareers system. Please contact us for information on what we can offer.
