Careers and employability

We’re proud of our graduates and their outstanding employment record.

We have an outstanding record for graduate employment, with 97% in work or study six months after graduation

We are also in the top 10 for ‘Sustained employment with or without further study’ in the most recent Longitudinal Educational Outcomes data, which looks at employment rates 1 year (9th), 3 years (9th) and 5 years (8th) after graduation.

Our courses are relevant and many are practically based. Thanks to our close links with local employers, we are able to offer a range of work experience, volunteering and internship opportunities.
