In a few words
"The careers service provides lots of opportunities such as one-to-one sessions on your next career steps and lots of big names such as PwC and HSBC come to campus. Short-term placements and work experiences are available in multiple locations ranging from the Midlands to further afield such as London and even abroad. These are divided into paid and unpaid, so you have options to suit you. We're also made well aware of the bursaries available to us to cover our costs whilst on these."
