Careers and employability

Kick-start your future

Our courses don't just fire up your imagination, they help you develop the skills and experience you'll need to get the job you want after graduation.

The University has long-standing links with business, industry, public sector and professional organisations. Our commitment to being the UK's leading business-facing university means we're driven to ensure you're the first choice for employers. So, whatever you want to do - or even if you're not quite sure yet - we'll help you on your way to a happy and fulfilling career

Business minded Courses

From Economics to English Literature, every one of our courses is designed to boost the skills employers are looking for. That's because each school works closely with experienced business people to plan its teaching programme. For example, all of our Business School students study modules in employability and entrepreneurship. This helps our students stay one step ahead in the job market, and our business partners get the highly skilled graduates they are looking for.
