7.5 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 73 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"I attended a number of employer presentations and careers fairs, attended CV workshops and assessment day workshops that were all very well thought out and run by the careers department. It's an under-utilised and unappreciated service but I rate them very highly. I have secured a job post-graduation and thank them for this."
