Deciding what you would like to do after you graduate can sometimes seem like a daunting prospect. We work with academic staff and employers to provide a tailored service to help you explore your options and find out more about the various career paths you could take.

Each faculty has a linked Career Consultant who works closely with staff and students to provide tailored events and information.

All of our consultants and advisers are able to offer you careers information and advice through our Ask the Adviser Service and workshops. During Ask the Adviser appointments you will see the duty adviser. If you are then referred to a longer 45 minute guidance appointment, you can request to see your subject's Career Consultant.

Take a look below at some resources we have put together to get you started.
