UCL Careers

UCL Careers is here to help you plan and develop your career during and after your studies. This includes helping you decide what career path to follow, offering opportunities to develop the skills that employers look for, assisting with finding work experience, internships, graduate roles or further study opportunities and helping you successfully secure a place though CV/application checking and practice interviews.

We offer a range of activities through the Skills4Work initiative. This includes skill development workshops, skill orientated panel discussions, CV/application form checking, practice interviews and mock assessment centres, all run by recruiters. For details, see the panel on the left under 'Events'.
In June, you can participate in the Employability strand of the Global Citizenship Programme. Second, penultimate and final year Undergraduates and Master's students are able to take part in our innovative two week programme, which runs during the summer term, designed to give you a head start in today’s international competitive job market. The two week programme involves a mix of workshops, talks, panel sessions, networking events, and personalised one-to-one coaching with employers, Careers Consultants and UCL Alumni as well as priority access to the end of year jobs fair.

Another fantastic skill development opportunity run by UCL Careers is the annual 'Focus on Management Course'. This 2-day non-residential course enables you to work in small teams with teamleaders from industry on various business case studies. Not only will this help you to develop commercial awareness, teamworking, organisational and presentation skills, it also gives you a fantastic opportunity to spend quality time with a range of recruiters from a variety of industry sectors. 

There are a number of other ways in which you can meet recruiters and discuss their skill requirements: attending careers fairs (held during the autumn term), participating in our 'Get Into….' weeks and attending recruiter presentations. You can discuss your career options and skill development with a careers adviser. Appointments are available throughout the year (term time and vacations). 
You can also participate in business competitons run by employers. To see what's on, visit our competitions page.
