Career support throughout your degree
From the moment our students start, they get careers information and advice - from employers, our careers team, and their tutors. So by the time they graduate, they will be equipped with the experience, contacts and skills to succeed in their chosen careers.
Employers shape our courses, provide careers advice, and provide placements and work experience opportunities. We also regularly invite employers in to talk about what it is like working for them and promote vacancies. This is the perfect occasion for you to talk with employers about careers, the sector and graduate opportunities.
Experience is vital in the healthcare sector so work placements are integral to all of our courses. Our students will get experience on placements in different healthcare environments. Alongside, they will develop skills and confidence in simulated healthcare conditions.
Many of our graduates are expected to develop social enterprises for their services. So we give you a head start while you're here through specialist enterprise bootcamps. You can also develop entrepreneurial skills at workshops or discuss ideas at one-to-ones in our Enterprise Zone.
Specialist careers support
Sector-specific careers advice is available for each department and one-to-ones are available with our dedicated healthcare team. These also arrange weekly careers panels, seminars and workshops where students can learn more about the profession.
And it doesn't end when our students graduate. Alumni can access our careers services up until three years after graduation.
