There are many choices available after gaining your degree. You will leave Southampton with a wealth of skills and a competitive edge, whatever career path you choose.

Graduates leave with a competitive edge
Opening up career options

You may be looking for relevant paid employment straight away, or planning to undertake further study – in which case you could become part of Southampton's 5,000-strong postgraduate student community and have access to state-of-the-art learning resources.

You might be considering a switch into a completely different field, or you may be unsure of where to go next. Whatever your situation, the Careers and Employability Service offers a wide range of services and support to students at all stages of their University life. 

Career destinations

BSc Population and Geography is a new course, taught from October 2010, and there will no graduates until June 2013. We are therefore unable to provide specific examples of graduate career destinations. However, we have taught BSc Population Sciences (no longer offered) and BA/BSc Geography for a number of years. These programmes share significant similarities and we provide a guide to the career opportunities available here.

Further study

An option popular with many Southampton graduates is to undertake further study, to secure qualifications for a particular profession or to ensure that they are strongly placed for employment. We offer postgraduate taught and research programmes in a number of areas.
