Finding Jobs in Your Country

Careers and Employability provide lots of support for international students and graduates looking to embark on a career here or in your home country.

A degree from University of the Arts London (UAL) is a powerful statement. During your time here, you’ve developed skills that can help you stand out in the jobs market back home.

We want to help you to find job opportunities in the UK or back home.

Our jobs advice pages, jobs board services and useful links apply to all graduates looking to work in UK, including international students.

But if you wish to return home to work, use our useful links and country guides to get you started.

Before you graduate

Wherever you are looking for work, there is plenty you can do before you graduate to prepare for jobhunting:

  • Make use of Careers and Employability’s Advice pages.
  • A strong referee can make all the difference. Before your course ends, contact a few people who will be happy to comment on your skills and your work – an academic supervisor or someone you’ve worked for or done an internship with while on your course.
  • Make sure you keep up-to-date with developments both in your home country and in your industry. Consider joining professional bodies associated with your discipline while you are still at university.
