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. 

What happens to law graduates?

After further study and training about 40 to 50 per cent of Southampton law graduates progress into the legal professions, while nearly 50 per cent make careers in other fields such as criminology, business, human resources, international relations, journalism and education.
