1. If you want to access the secure (and interesting!) areas of the Imperial Careers website you must first register at and complete an application form. The log-in area for RCA students and AlumniRCA is top right on the home page.

2. Once you've registered to access the Imperial Careers website, you can also sign up for JobsLive which allows you to book for Imperial Careers events, view online job vacancies etc.

3. The Imperial Careers service is open all year round, not just in term time, but please do phone ahead if you are visiting during the summer as we are occasionally closed for training days at this time. There is no need to book if you just wish to visit the Careers Library, but you must show your RCA Library Card or AlumniRCA membership card to staff on arrival
