Employability and Careers

What is Employability?

The future is bright for Arts and Humanities students.  In addition to the transferable skills you develop through study and the curriculum, the College offers various employability opportunities and initiatives.

We are working both across the University and externally with employers, employer representative groups, professional bodies and partner International Institutions to provide our undergraduate, postgraduate, UK, EU and International students with the opportunity to undertake study abroad, work placements, internships and extra-curricular activities. We want to ensure our Graduates have excellent skills and attributes to compete and succeed in the job market.
