All ULIP students receive a free dedicated careers service through the Careers & Enterprise team at Queen Mary University of London. This careers service is part of the Careers Group,the largest university careers service in Europe, which provides products and services designed to help individuals achieve and maintain job satisfaction throughout their working lives.

Online resources 

You will have access to thousands of online resources, including industry guides, international job search listings, psychometric tests practice, application and interview support, jobs blog, livestreamed careers presentation and more.

Individual advice 

A dedicated ULIP careers adviser who visits ULIP at least twice during the academic year to offer seminars and one-to-one advice sessions. These one-to-one sessions provide you with an opportunity to discuss specific plans in person, 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 ULIP. Phone and Skype appointments are available throughout the year. 

Careers talks and events 

ULIP organises seminars and workshops in collaboration with the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) 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 ULIP alumni and other professionals from Paris and further afield take place on a regular basis, organised both by ULIP or the Students’ Union. You will also have the opportunity to attend selected FBCCI networking events. 

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 ULIP students.

Graduate support

Once you graduate, you automatically become part of the global community of the University of London alumni. 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.
