"The uni is always trying to make you feel comfortable and ready for employment. Almost everyone is already working a part-time job or volunteering and the careers service helps you to get your CV up to date and more attractive for employers. There are constant career events on and off campus that are advertised and emailed to students. There are also many speakers that come in from different businesses that would like to recruit students for summer internships or placements."
"Our careers service is very hard working and friendly."
"I'm on a midwifery course and the NHS sends in consultants to discuss job applications with third years. Guest lecturers all work within midwifery and are very informative and let us see a lot of diversity between roles."

"The careers service is very involved with students and is always sending emails and visiting classes. They care a lot about students' needs."
