Careers Service

For careers advice, guidance and information for students and graduates, talk to a Career Consultant.

The Careers Service aims to offer a fair and equal service to all its clients, regardless of their sex, ethnic origin, age, sexuality, religion or disability. We are able to offer additional support to students who may benefit from extra help, and we have several booklets available for download to support job applications.
