Careers for Postgraduate Students

The provision of careers information is very important for our postgraduate students and so we work closely with UCL Careers and the Departmental Careers Tutor, Professor Robert Hazell to arrange a number of career events for students throughout the year.

Our past students have gone on to pursue careers within a range of sectors including: Public Administration and Defence, International Bodies and Research and Development.

“The knowledge I gained during the course of my Master’s, and exposure to the different dimensions of development, including the importance of sound governance structures, were fundamental in shaping my professional career so far. I received excellent guidance from lecturers and tutors, and would encourage all SPP students to make the most of their time at UCL.”

"In my life I have had four careers, so I know a lot about recruitment, from both sides.

I look forward to sharing that knowledge with you."
