Faculty or department events

Careers Consultants who know all about your degree and your possible future career choices deliver workshops in most academic departments. They include everything from what career options are available for students on your degree to how to prepare for entry into specific careers. Some sessions are in the curriculum, some are part of a specific extra-curricular programme. We also run special programmes for postgraduate research students, those with a year-in-industry embedded into their course and international students from China, the USA and Europe.
