Plan ahead and enhance your decision making and knowledge of the graduate jobs market by taking the Career development modules.

This module is sponsored by PwC

These accredited modules will allow you to increase your awareness of your skills and personal characteristics, while preparing for the graduate job market. The modules will give you a head start if you are applying for internships, year in industry placements and graduate jobs. Both Career development modules are electives, giving you the perfect opportunity to enhance your employability whilst gaining credits towards your degree.

The modules are developed and delivered by professionally-accredited and experienced Career Consultants with graduate employer involvement throughout. Both modules are highly practical and are assessed continually throughout the semester with no exams.

I achieved a job from going to a networking event as part of the careers module. 

Feedback on the mock interview was useful, because it was personal and therefore helped in subsequent interviews for real internships.

This module opened my eyes to different types of application processes and ways the University can help.
