We support students to develop the scientific knowledge, hands-on experience, and transferable skills required by employers in today’s global job market.
From cancer researchers to carnivore keepers, environmentalists to science bloggers, our graduates go on to enjoy a wide range of successful and rewarding careers.
Our students have an excellent reputation for finding employment after they graduate. Our most recent data shows that 93% of our graduates were in employment or further studies within six months of graduation.
A significant proportion of our graduates go on to study a PhD or master’s degree, while many others enjoy successful careers in science-related fields such as research and development, conservation, environmental management, medical research, scientific publishing, public health and wildlife management, amongst many others.
A bioscience degree can act as a stepping-stone to further training in professional areas including teaching, medicine, dentistry, nursing, and veterinary science. Our graduates also have many transferable skills that are attractive to a wide range of employers in other industries.
The University offers a Careers and Employability Service that is open to students, postgraduate students and graduates up to two years after graduation. It offers a range of services to help you get the most out of your degree (and your future), including:
- employability masterclasses - CVs, covering letters and applications
- one-to-one advice sessions with qualified careers advisers
- the Cardiff Award employability scheme
- work experience schemes and advice
- careers fairs and employer-led events to enable networking with top graduate employers.
