When booking an appointment please let us know if your student record may include personal details that are inaccurate  e.g. the name that you are currently known as and your preferred gender pronoun.

For simple or urgent queries, the Careers Service now offers bookable quick query appointments during semester.

These appointments will be scheduled with the duty Careers Consultant and will last for a maximum of 15 minutes.  

Quick Queries may NOT be used for CV checking or for more in-depth discussions. If you are unsure about whether your enquiry is suitable for a Quick Query, please telephone us or ask at reception.

You may only book one Quick Query appointment in any 28 day period.

Before booking your Quick Query appointment,  please ensure that you have reviewed our FAQs.

 

Please note that as these appointments only last for a maximum of 15 minutes, late arrivals will not be seen.

When booking an appointment please let us know if your student record may include personal details that are inaccurate  e.g. the name that you are currently known as and your preferred gender pronoun.

If you want help with more complex matters such as understanding your options, making a good career choice, weighing up the pros and cons of several possibilities or selecting the right employers to target, you may arrange an appointment with a Careers Consultant.  While the Careers team are working from home, please contact our reception staff by email at yourcareer@strath.ac.uk to arrange a zoom appointment.

 

To help make the best type of appointment for you, our reception staff will ask a number of questions, such as 'Can you explain what you wish to discuss with the consultant?' Please be as specific as possible and understand that they are asking these questions to help you. They are not being nosey!

Appointments have to be made in advance. We will give you the earliest suitable appointment possible but please plan ahead. We make every effort to provide an appointment within 3 weeks but this will not always be possible at busy times of the year. If you cannot keep your appointment, please tell us so that someone else can use that appointment time.

It is important that you login on time for your appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you will not be seen by the consultant.
