University of Portsmouth
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 78 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"The SPEC office at the university are brilliant. They are willing to spend ages with you going through applications and CVs for every job. The Purple Door service holds mock interviews and has links with companies who come in and do the same. They help a lot and with their help and advice I got a placement year role straight away."
