Careers service

Employers rate our undergraduate courses very highly and actively target our graduates, giving you excellent job prospects. For recent examples of the careers our graduates have gone on to undertake, visit the undergraduate course pages.

The undergraduate job market is more competitive than ever and it is our aim to ensure that our students have the best opportunity to develop their skills and become highly employable.

We encourage students to start thinking about their career plans as early as possible and we aim to support career development, from exploring career options, to securing that ideal job. During your time with us, you can learn more about different careers through guest lectures, discussions with your academic advisor, summer internships and work placements.
