Your future: Careers and employability support for final-year students

Drawing of a question mark on paper

If you’re in your final year, you might be thinking about what you’re going to do next after your undergraduate studies. Whether that’s looking for graduate work, gaining transferrable skills and experience, moving into further study, or perhaps you’re not sure yet.

Whatever stage you’re currently at, the Careers and Employability team is here to support you now and for three years after you graduate.

Support available to you includes:

  • CV review and feedback on job applications via CareerHub
  • interview preparation, such as tips and test interviews
  • discussing your career options and looking at steps you can take
  • starting or scaling up your own business with our Entrepreneurship team – check out the Entrepreneurship podcast for previous examples
  • access to graduate vacancies and schemes
  • exclusive opportunities through Career Lab: Design your future.
