In a few words
"Most courses have a careers module which teaches students how to look into job prospects that suit their degree. There have been careers fairs where companies have visited the university and students can ask questions. These have been prestigious companies such as IBM, which is helpful as you can see what type of CV is needed to compete for high quality jobs."
