Our services in semester one, Autumn 2021

We are delighted to welcome back students to the newly-refurbished Careers space for face-to-face appointments from Monday 27 September 2021 - see more details on our appointments page.

In line with University guidelines, we recommend that you wear a face covering whilst in the Careers space and during your appointment; hand sanitiser will be available in all appointment spaces.

We will also continue to offer remote video and phone appointments, and our events and workshops will be a combination of on-campus and online activities.
