Plan ahead, discover what opportunities are available to you and enhance your decision making by taking the Career Planning Modules.

These accredited modules will increase your awareness of your skills and personal characteristics, while preparing for your future career. The two Career Development modules will prepare you for the future by looking at how you fit into the workplace and build your confidence in digitially articulating a professional image for employers.

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

If you are in your Middle Year you can take the elective 20 credit module - Developing Your Professional Identity: Reflective Practice for Informed Career Planning CSER 2208

If you are in your Final Year you can take the  elective 10 Credit module - Developing a Graduate Identity: Reflective Practice for Informed Career Planning CSER 3102

More details can be found in the module catalogue.

If you have taken a work placement year as part of your degree you can take our "Building upon a Year in Industry Module" CSER3060

CSER3060 is only open, as an elective, to students who have done a work placement year as an accredited part of their degree.
