Note regarding internships: Whilst UCL Q-Step aims to place as many students as possible, the number of paid internships available may vary year on year and is dependent on available funding.  The Q-Step Centre only has funds to cover internship provision through summer 2021. We are exploring further options but presently we will not continue the scheme beyond that date, so unfortunately students enrolling at UCL from September 2020 do not benefit from the scheme.
