Careers services

Please comment on the support you’ve had from the careers services, the type of employers that present and recruit on campus, the effectiveness of the alumni network, as well as fairs and on-campus recruitment activity.


"I've been given lectures on how to write CVs, how to prepare for interviews etc. There is also a career service you can visit for any questions you have, their help is very useful."
"Career modules and mock interviews being part of the course. I have plenty of one-off career seminars and industrial visits to link us with the companies."
"Careers service is excellent! Loads of support with building my CV. There are also lots of events including careers fairs, recruitment events etc."
"Took part in the vocational placement module in second year so I attended many careers service talks since. Very helpful. However, could do with being better advertised and more encouragement to go by staff."
"The career services have been very helpful so far. I have had one-to-one sessions with the advisor and more are planned in the future so that I can align myself towards the goal of my life and career."
"Our careers service is rated one of the best in the country."
"They put on a graduate fair so you can sign up to graduate schemes and talk to people from the company. This is usually very engineering based though, but that's where the jobs are!"
"We had a talk from the careers service. The NHS head of service for our profession came in to talk about what she looked for in candidates, we're also having help with applications and interviews. There are a lot of on-campus recruitment fairs and activities but this course is more specifically vocational so they are not really relevant to me."
"I have not contacted the careers services, but I know they do arrange a lot of workshops and talks with a wide range of employers like HSBC, PwC, Network Rail, Royal Air Force, etc. Two fairs each year and on-campus recruitment from time to time, last one was a few weeks ago with the Army."
"Careers service are very helpful. Lots of events for meeting employers. There can be a lack of interest in jobs from the student population though, in comparison to other universities who are very job focused."
