Careers Library and Resources

I used the books from the careers library on how to be successful in cognitive and psychometric tests and it was really helpful because the way it was done in those books was exactly the same as it was in the interview. Being able to practise these made the interview process easier for me.

There are over 300 books available in our Careers Centre in Building 37, Highfield Campus, as well as over 100 e-books which can be accessed online. Our library holds a variety of reading materials covering many topics, including application and interview advice, career planning tips, working abroad, starting your own business and sector specific information.

To browse the full list of titles available, please click on our book inventory below. Alternatively, to browse our range of e-books, please visit our dedicated e-books webpage.

Resources are also available across our other campuses including Winchester School of Art, the National Oceanographic Library and the Health Services Library at Southampton General Hospital.

In addition we have free materials and publications to take away. Please click on the boxes below for more information.
