UCL Careers



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).​


Access our jobs board to search for part-time work, internships, placements or graduate-level opportunities from employers or organisations targeting UCL. You can also search our organisations' directory for details of companies who work closely with UCL Careers.

News and updates

Update your profile to receive daily or weekly email alerts about new opportunities and events according to your areas of interest, and sign-up to our Careers Newsletter to stay informed about opportunities, events and features from employers and staff.

Logging in - current students

You will have myUCLCareers access from the first day of your course at UCL, (usually the first day of the autumn term), and 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.

As your course ends, your UCL single sign-on access through the 'Student sign in' option will stop working, (you will receive a 'permission denied' error message after entering your details).

You will still have access to myUCLCareers using the 'Alumni sign in' option as explained below.

However, if you receive a 'permisison denied' error message but are still currently enrolled as a UCL student, please contact UCL Careers for support.

Logging in - recent graduates

All UCL graduates will have continued access to myUCLCareers for up to three years* after you complete your course. When your old UCL user ID stops working with the student log in option detailed above, the default for your new login is your old UCL email address, (usually in the format: name.surname.yy@ucl.ac.uk where 'yy' is the year you first joined UCL).

For first time access as a graduate, simply click the 'Alumni sign in' 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 for support.

If you no longer use your UCL email account to receive password reset instructions 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 confirming your new username and providing a secure link 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 who left UCL more than two years ago, please see our alternative sources of support information.

Research staff

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:

  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 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 careers@ucl.ac.uk 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.
