Professional Services

Enabling excellence at London's global university.



UCL Careers offers a comprehensive careers information and advice/guidance service to all current students, staff and GradClub members (alumni up to two years post completion of their qualification).  UCL Careers is uniquely placed between employers and the UCL community and as such runs a comprehensive annual employer-led events programme.  This includes large careers fairs and presentation by recruiters, trying to attract UCL talent as well as more educative activities such as skill development workshops and sector themed weeks.  The UCL Careers job vacancy site covers graduate jobs, internships and placements. 

Every department has a dedicated careers consultant who facilitates careers activities for students.  Bespoke programmes are also run for masters students, researchers (PhDs and postdoctoral staff), international students and recent alumni.

Data is collected by UCL Careers on behalf of HESA each year which details all students' destinations in terms of further study, employment and so on.  This is supplied to departments and feeds into league tables and the KIS.
