Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

During the Introductory Programme at the start of your first year of
studies, you will meet staff from the Centre for Personal and Career
Development, who will talk to you about how best to prepare for your
chosen career and the services they have to offer to help you with
that preparation over the next three years. Towards the end of Year
One, a session will be organized for your year group to discuss your
choice of units for Years Two and Three, taking your occupational
goals very much into consideration. For those students intending to
teach, a tutor from the PGCE programme will attend this session to
offer specific advice on how best to prepare for a PGCE. In Year
Three, your personal tutor will act as a source of information on life
after university and write references for job applications.
