What Next after University? Support from your University Careers Service

Honours years are an excellent time to start researching your future after graduation, if you haven’t already done so.

Whatever your ideas – work, further study, gap year, volunteering, gaining experience – whatever stage you’re at – clued up or clueless, and anything in between, the Careers Service can support you in your journey from university to your future after graduation. We work with students and graduates from day one, to 2 years after graduation.

We offer information, advice and guidance on:

  • Career direction
  • Gaining experience
  • Job hunting
  • CVs, applications and interviews
  • Further study

and more via our website, careers information centre, individual discussion with a careers adviser, programme of talks and events, and other media.
