Our students are going on to do great things. The most recent Destination of Leavers of Higher Education Survey (DHLE, 2019) showed that 95% of our economics graduates in 2017 were in employment or further study, just six months after graduation.
The Student Opportunity Team can help with devising and implementing your long-term career plans. They run a packed programme of employer-led skills workshops and presentations, and host careers fairs attended by a wide range of employers. Whatever you’re interested in there’ll be something to suit you.
