At UCL we take your future ambitions seriously and provide you with the support to realise them.
We know you will invest considerable time and money undertaking a degree at UCL, and do so to boost your career or undertake further study in the UK or abroad.
Realise your ambitions
The team of professional consultants at UCL Careers can discuss your options and help you to plan your next move. UCL students are highly regarded and targeted by employers, who value their academic achievements and the skills they gain through extracurricular activities and work experience.
UCL Careers is part of The Careers Group, University of London, and you can also attend events hosted by them.
The Student View
"I was accepted for a summer placement at Mace, after representatives from the company came to UCL to talk about placement opportunities.
"I had the opportunity to work on two very prestigious projects in the public sector. I had my own part of the project which I was in charge of managing and worked very closely to other members of the project team. This helped me to build on connections with people not only within Mace, but architects, contractors, suppliers, clients, etc."
Jignesh Patel, Project Management for Construction (Sandwich) BSc (2018)
Careers without frontiers
For international students, we offer a range of globally focused talks and events catering to both international students and those looking to work overseas.
For up to two years after leaving UCL, graduates have access to specialist one-to-one coaching from careers consultants experienced with dealing with recent leavers, a suite of careers-related workshops designed specifically for the issues of the graduate job seeker plus the same range of services (including the employer events programme) from which current students benefit.
Every academic department has a specialist careers consultant who runs a bespoke programme of activities, from talks about career options, to panel discussions on the experiences of previous students.
UCL JobOnline is our very own online jobs board, promoting about 2,500 jobs, work experience and internship opportunities a week to UCL students.
UCL Talent Bank is run by UCL Careers and puts you in touch with employers who are actively recruiting UCL students in small and medium-sized organisations for internships or graduate roles. UCL Careers will help coach you through the application and interview process.
