Your future career
With a postgraduate qualification from one of the UK's leading research universities, employers will expect you to be good at what you do. We'll teach you how to showcase your talents.
Show employers what you can do
We want you to graduate with a clear idea of what you have to offer. We'll show you how everything you learn can be applied in your career. And we'll teach you how to present your skills in a way that employers appreciate.
You'll learn how to analyse complex problems and offer solutions. You'll work with people and on your own, and you'll learn how to handle pressure. When employers see your CV, they'll see someone who can deliver results.
Specialist careers advice
The Careers Service is here to help you at every stage throughout your course. We have details of all the latest job vacancies and work experience opportunities.
There are regular careers information events. Employers come to the University to meet masters students. We also run workshops on CV writing, presentation skills and preparing for interviews.
We work with employers to help you find the right work experience. This could mean vacation work, an internship or a placement as part of a project. We can also advise you on using your work experience to improve your career prospects.
