Career Directions

A postgraduate degree is essential if you’re intending to pursue an academic career, but it will also equip you with a range of skills which are valuable for many different career paths.

Whether you’re unsure about your options, or you’ve got a clear idea of what you’d like to do after you graduate, the Careers Service is here to help. For example, we offer:

  • A discussion with a careers adviser
  • A website packed full of useful careers information – find out about a range of careers sectors from academia to the media to financial sectors
  • A range of tools and resources to help you plan your career
  • A comprehensive diary of events, workshops and briefing sessions to help you explore various career options
  • Support in finding jobs, applying for them, and attending interviews

Find out more by visiting the Careers Service website.

A detailed description of our services, as well as useful information on careers, can be found in the Guide to the Careers Service available at Stuart House.
