Each department has designated staff to help students with careers. Support is also available from the University's Employability and Careers Centre, which organises a range of events throughout the year, and can offer students professional one-to-one advice and guidance on jobs related to their degree. We offer support each step of the way through focused job searching, making effective applications and preparing for interviews.
