Career development

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

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.

If you can, enrol in the Career Development module, I can't emphasise how much it helped the application process.

I feel confident now to go forward with graduate applications.

The mock interview was the most beneficial aspect.
