The Career Development
Centre aims to help students make informed career choices throughout
their time at university and offers ongoing support to recent
graduates. We actively encourage students to use the service
and ask for your assistance by referring students for help and
advice. Please contact the Career
Development Centre for further details.
In addition to individual contact with students, we also run a variety of talks and workshops throughout the year:
Talks and workshops
All of the above are ongoing and open
to all students. However, we are happy to deliver versions of
these workshops directly to your students upon request.
Each year, various outside speakers are invited into the University to give a presentation or run workshops for our students. The presentations will cover various occupational areas of interest to students, including careers in teaching, social work, HR, transport and the police force. Other employers, including national companies such as Enterprise Rent-a-Car run a number of practical workshops and actively encourage students to get involved in mock interviews and psychometric testing.
The Career Development Centre advertises graduate job vacancies and work experience opportunities online. Part-time job vacancies are also advertised online - please visit our Jobshop here.
All graduates leaving the University are contacted six months after graduation to find out more about their employment status and to offer further advice and assistance if required. This information is recorded and held by the Career Development Centre and is available in our information room along with both national and local labour market information. Further information can also be found on the Prospects website.
The Career Development Centre provides students, graduates and staff with access to a wide range of reference material held within the information room.
The Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) for Scotland has an excellent service that will be of interest to many.
