What we do

Career Zone is a service created especially for our current students and our alumni.

We’re a one-stop shop, providing you with a support network that enables you to grow and develop from your first few weeks until you achieve your career aims, and beyond.

 

We work with industry

As a careers-led university, we work alongside industry partners to deliver practical education to our students and innovative solutions to 21st century problems for our partners and society.

We collaborate with external partners to ensure courses are up to industry standards and to give our students unique opportunities, like our recent partnership with AWS Educate which gives all our students free access to cloud-computing skills.

University community

Our University community remains unique and a key element of our careers-led education.

Our staff and student community is diverse in its make-up and its thinking, our location is a major part of our identity and our sports, events and activities reinforce our unique brand.

There is much more to being a Careers-1st University than simply getting a job.

It is about skills for life, underpinned by the resilience and fortitude that will see our student body thrive.
