Careers and job opportunities

One of the most important things you'll do before you graduate is ensure you're career-ready with all the skills and knowledge needed to secure job opportunities and start building your career. We help you research organisations and opportunities, search and apply for jobs, prepare application documents and provide a platform where you can acquire the skills and experience to become career-ready.

The Career and Employment Service is open to all current students during their studies and up to 12 months after they graduate.

If you are seeking careers advice, you may not need a face-to-face appointment.  See your options below...

    Developing a career plan helps you to define your future career path and take charge of your own advancement. It will give a sense of direction and purpose to your studies.
