EMPLOYABILITY & SKILLS

Whilst studying for a postgraduate degree, whether taught or research, there are many opportunities for you to develop your skills and employability. 

Through my Skills Acquisition Project, I want to ensure you have the information needed to develop both transferable and vocational skills, to make sure you’re in the best position post-graduation.

I aim to do this by signposting relevant careers services, where you can find work, seek advice and access useful resources.

Alongside this I want to provide personal development opportunities through Postgrad events and Masterclasses, where you can network, have fun and learn vocational skills.

So, if you’re looking for work, need advice or want to up-skill, keep reading!
