Career focused teaching

So what does that actually mean for you? It means we teach you to become ready for the working world. You don’t have to take us at our word, because over 96.5% of Herts students are getting jobs within the first six months of graduating. Even better, of those graduates in work, 78% of them are in professional or managerial roles.
