Individual advice

Dedicated University of London Institute in Paris careers advisers offer seminars and one-to-one advice sessions. These one-to-one sessions provide you with an opportunity to discuss specific plans, such as further study or graduate training applications, or to have a chance to talk very generally about what sort of things you need to think about when planning the step beyond the Institute in Paris. Phone and online appointments are available throughout the year. 

Careers talks and events

The University of London Institute in Paris organises seminars and workshops focusing on the wider French and European recruitment market to complement the advice and guidance offered by Queen Mary University of London’s Careers & Enterprise. Careers Talks with University of London Institute in Paris alumni and other professionals from Paris and further afield take place on a regular basis, organised both by the Institute in Paris or the Students’ Union. 

Work experience

We are strongly committed to helping our students obtain work experience through internships, which will maximise their employability after graduation, whether in France or the UK. Membership of the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce and Industry gives us contact with a wide range of Paris-based businesses, many of whom have opportunities suitable for University of London Institute in Paris students.

Graduate support

Once you graduate, you automatically become part of the global community of the University of London alumni(Opens in new window). This gives you access to all the benefits and services offered by the University to its alumni, including two years of free careers advice offered through Queen Mary Careers & Enterprise, alumni membership of Student Central and Senate House Library, and invitations to events in Paris, London and around the world.

We foster linguistic and cultural exchange links with a number of Parisian higher education institutions in order to help our students integrate into the local community and make the most of their life in Paris.
