Appointments

From Monday 8th May 2017 until Monday 4th September 2017 the careers service will be running an appointments only system. Therefore if you wish to have a careers appointment or job and placement shop appointment you do not need to sign up on the door on the day as usual, we will pre-book you an appointment. This works better over the summer period to meet your needs when you are not always on campus.

We are here over the summer for all students and graduates of up to three years so come and utilise our services:

1st Years – Come in and start to prepare for your work placement!

2nd Years – Start to plan for your final year, know your career options, prepare your postgraduate applications or know how to present yourself to employers!

3rd Years – If you have finished your course we can help you find employment or a place on a course. Don’t forget you can access careers advice for 3 years after graduation!

We are here for all part-time and postgraduate students and also do selected evenings and weekends:

  • Saturday 13th May 2017 - 9am-4pm
  • Saturday 15th July 2017 - 9am-4pm
  • Saturday 12th August - 9am-4pm
