Employability support

We're ranked Top 15 in the World for careers services (UK International Student Barometer (ISB) Benchmark and Global ISB Benchmark 2018). Our Careers and Employability Services team are available online to support you to develop your employability skills and prepare for your future career. A limited number of in-person appointments are available by request.

Gaining work experience

We work with organisations providing work-based learning and student placements/internships. Those that can continue with social distancing will go ahead (depending on provider agreement), and we have secured a number of remote and virtual placement and internship opportunities for our students and graduates. We work with faculties to support credit-bearing placements and industry-based projects which can also be undertaken remotely. 

Career-development resources are available to all students on our virtual learning platform – Canvas.
