Choosing Your Career

At some stage we all make choices about the career path we will follow. We can help you with this process if:

  • You are unsure where to start,
  • You have no idea of the career that would suit you,  
  • You have some vague ideas but need support to think them through,
  • You need help finding more information

It is never too early to start thinking about your future career. We're happy to work with you from first year, throughout your degree and beyond graduation - at whatever stage you’ve reached in your thinking.
