Students at a postgraduate open evening
Welcome to your Careers Service! As a postgraduate student you have access to all of the support and services that we offer.
We can provide advice and guidance on:
  • applying for a masters degree as a next step when you don’t know what to do after your undergraduate studies
  • additional study as a stepping stone to satisfy your curiosity in a particular subject
  • knowing clearly what you want to do
  • undertaking postgraduate study at specific levels because your preferred profession requires it (for example Clinical Psychologists, amongst others)
  • being a career changer and/or mature student
  • being someone who wants to do a PhD
  • and a number of other circumstances we've probably missed here.
We know that you may have additional questions relating to your future plans whilst at university and beyond graduation. The great news is that we’re available to you free of charge throughout your studies and beyond graduation. Contact us via email or our virtual hub.
If you’re an undergraduate student who is interested in postgraduate study, check out our specific webpage about continuing to postgraduate study and other information on our Careers homepage.

Graduate recruitment is invaluable to employers as a way to bring new talent into the business and shape it to reach its potential.

Graduate Outcomes

The Graduate Outcomes survey is the biggest annual social survey in the UK. The survey is important because your opinions will help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development and the University to shape our programmes for students who are following in your footsteps. The survey also contacts postgraduates:
  • 15 months after graduation
  • by email or phone
  • to learn about your activities and views.
Please keep your details up to date and respond if HESA contacts you to complete the survey.
