Information for Prospective UCL Students
UCL Careers provides support for current UCL students and recent graduates but we are unable to provide pre-entry support for those considering applying to UCL.
The resources / contacts below are a more suitable starting point for exploring your options for studying at University.
If you do apply to UCL, once enrolled on your course, you'll have full access to the wide range of services we offer as detailed in the left menu here or in our Annual Guide on the right.
Options with a specific degree
For most Departments, UCL Careers provides a Departmental Careers Page. This will provide information on employment rates for graduates who've completed undergraduate degrees in that department recently.
will also link through to "What London Graduates Do" - a site which
provides more detailed destinations information for graduates who've
completed specific degree courses at UCL and other University of London
colleges. Simply search for the degree title you're interested in for details.
You can also explore information on
graduate level jobs where that specific degree qualification is either
required or would be valued by recruiters in that sector. Alternatively, if you have a specific career goal in mind, these job profiles will highlight essential or recommended degree disciplines.
Information from the Department
Additionally, many Departments will provide information about Alumni, links with Professional Associations and typical career paths in the information they provide for prospective students. You can find this by specific degree programme or by subject area using the UCL Prospectus.
HEFCE, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, provide "Key Information Sets", (KIS), which are comparable sets of information
about full or part time undergraduate courses for prospective students. As well as employment and destinations data, KIS also provides data on student satisfaction, costs and accommodation plus information on entry requirements and course delivery. This can all be accessed via the UNISTATS website.
UCAS also provide useful tips and advice for those considering studying at undergraduate level.
Your school, college or other current educational institution may also have support available on University options.
More general information on the Graduate Labour Market and employment trends for graduates or non-graduates is also published by the UK Government and HECSU, (the Higher Education Careers Services Unit).
All information relating specifically to a particular course at UCL will be provided by the relevant Department. This can be found by specific degree programme or by subject area using the UCL Prospectus.
If your queries can't be answered by the online information, all Departments will provide a contact phone number for their Admissions Tutors on their prospectus pages.
Alternatively, you can get the contact number for a specific Departmental Admissions Tutor's number from the UCL Switchboard: 020 7679 2000.
For more general information on what it's like to study at UCL, the UCL Prospectus is the best place to start for information.
You can also "Meet UCL" through College Open Days, other tours and events or via a virtual tour to find out more about the college and support services for students.
For details of how UCL Careers can support you with your career planning once you're on a course at UCL, our Annual Guide or the left menu here will provide a detailed overview of the services we provide for students.
Please note however that UCL Careers does not provide 1-1 pre-entry advice or guidance for those thinking of applying to study at UCL.
