Research Students


Research students have access to a specialist Careers Consultant in twice weekly sets of appointments. These last 30 minutes and you can discuss any career related issue, such as:

  • Your CV, cover letters and application forms
  • Decisions about what to do at the end of your studentship, for example choosing to stay in academia or starting a career elsewhere
  • Planning your next steps to get where you want to be
  • How to market your research and other skills to recruiters

Long Guidance:

We can also offer individual sessions of up to an hour for those who need further advice and support. These are available by referral from the Careers Consultant after your initial 30 minute appointment.

Practice Interviews

Practice Interviews are available all year round to those with a confirmed 'real' interview and last up to an hour.
