UCL Careers for Employers


Careers Extra

Enhanced careers support for UCL undergraduates from under-represented groups.

Careers Extra is our programme of enhanced careers support for UCL undergraduates from any of the following under-represented groups: 
•    Neither parent went to university and you went to a UK state school 
•    Care experienced or estranged 
•    Carer 
•    Disabled 
•    Household income below £25,000 (as declared to Student Finance England) 
•    Black British African, Black British Caribbean, British Black Other, British Black Mixed 
•    Received an Access UCL offer.
We are keen to hear about initiatives employers have in place to support applicants from any of these backgrounds, and can also advise you about implementing effective strategies to engage with them. 

We can also share information about your organisation’s relevant events and opportunities to students who have signed up for the Careers Extra mailing list, such as insight events, internships, or mentoring opportunities for underrepresented students. SMEs and charities may be interested in the Careers Extra funded Summer internships scheme (more details can be found here).

If you would like to be kept updated about relevant UCL events that may be suitable for you, to connect with students in one or more of the above groups, please let us know and we will add you to a distribution list.  Please let us know if you would find it useful to have a conversation with a member of the Careers Extra team to find out more about any of the above.
