About us


The Undergraduate and ITE Admissions Office is responsible for all admissions to UCL’s undergraduate degree, affiliate and Teacher Training programmes. It handles approximately 80,000 applications per cycle and is responsible for admitting approximately 7,000 undergraduate and 1,000 ITE students in each academic year. The Admissions function is critical in ensuring that UCL secures the desired number of students to meet UCL’s aspirations in terms of securing and maintaining a well-qualified, balanced student body and associated tuition fee income.


About the role


We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Admissions Officer to work in our central admissions team, which manages applications to programmes across UCL. The posts will typically be focused on undergraduate applications within one of our Faculty Teams.

Working as part of a team in a busy, friendly and supportive environment your duties will include: administration of all aspects of undergraduate admissions, such as assessing and making selection decisions on applications against agreed criteria; communicating decisions to UCAS and applicants; handling enquiries from applicants, parents, schools and colleagues within UCL; preparing documentation to support applicants applying for a visa through the Home Office points based immigration system; and ensuring all entrants meet and are compliant with statutory requirements. You will also play an active part in delivering results day activities in the summer as well as providing support to colleagues across UCL with open days and welcome activities throughout the academic year.

We are operating hybrid working and you will have the opportunity to work remotely for up to four days a week. At peak times (for example release of A level results, open days, enrolment) staff will be required on campus more often.
