myUCLCareers is an online portal enabling current students, recent graduates and researchers, (staff and students), to engage with many of our services as detailed below.
Check availability of and book one-to-one careers guidance or application/interview coaching appointments. (Please read our 'Get one-to-one advice' page before booking).
View our forthcoming events calendar and manage all of your event bookings with us. (For an overview of the wide range of event types we offer, please read our 'Come to an event' page before logging in).
Logging in - current students
You will need your standard UCL 'single sign-on' user ID and password to access your account. If you don't know your UCL user ID or are having problems with your password, please visit the UCL ISD website for support.
If your course is due to end / has ended recently, continue to use the 'Student login' option as above. When your student status on PORTICO is updated to show that you have completed your course, you will see a 'permission denied' error which means you'll need to register then log in as a graduate as explained below. However, if you receive this 'permisison denied' error but are currently enrolled as a UCL student, please contact UCL Careers).
Logging in - recent graduates
After you complete your course at UCL, your old UCL user ID will stop working with the student log in option detailed above - after entering your details you will see a 'Permission Denied' error message. However, if you completed your course within the past two years*, you will still have continued access to your old myUCLCareers account.
Your new login is simply your old UCL email address, (usually in the format: firstname.lastname@example.org where 'yy' is the year you first joined UCL). For first time use as a graduate, click the 'Alumni sign in and registration' button and then request a new password using this email address. (Note: If you used myUCLCareers as a student and added a non-UCL email address to your profile, you will need to use that to request a new password instead). If you're not sure which email address is on your myUCLCareers profile, please contact us.
If you no longer use your UCL email account and wish to register a new email address with us, there is a short registration form that you can complete and we'll then email you details of your new username and how to create a password.
For the form, you will be asked for your 'student number' which is the 'UPI' Code 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 or student enrolment summary if you have lost your old ID card).
If can't find this code, please contact us rather than registering online as this will speed up the process of setting up graduate access to your account.
*For more information on careers support for graduates, please see our eligibility information.
If you are employed by UCL as a member of research staff, (including postdoctoral research staff/research assistants etc.), you will need to register your details with us to set up access to a myUCLCareers account.
Select the Research Staff button and you will have two options:
- 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: 'email@example.com' and then complete the other details on the registration form.
- Once you have received the email notification that your registration has been approved, click the 'Log in' button and use your standard UCL user ID and password to log in to your account.

Other staff (departmental administrators and careers liaison / personal tutors)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your job title, UCL user-id and details of the type / groups of students, (level / discipline etc.), you work with and in what capacity and we will then email you when your account is ready to log in to via the 'Departmental Staff' button.
