University of Oxford
7.7 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 218 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Careers service seems effective and helpful but they need to try and publicise themselves more, especially within colleges themselves. There is almost no contact with employers on campus except for TeachFirst. There are fairs once or twice a year but I would recommend they be more often so that when you miss one you don't miss out that year. I've had no contact with alumni whatsoever."
