As we come to the end of what feels like the busiest week ever for the Careers Service (with our 2 big Careers Fairs)! And since it is several weeks since the start of the semester, I thought it might be worth having a recap about the range of support you can access at the Careers Service. Our aim is to provide information, advice and guidance to help you achieve your career goals.
As an international student you can obviously access all the general services we provide for all students.

In addition there are services specifically for International students.
