Careers support

James Long on placement year

Throughout your time with us our dedicated Faculty Employability Team will be there to support, guide and advise you. In addition to specialist face-to-face meetings, you’ll benefit from:


•    Specialist employability meetings
•    Timetabled employability sessions
•    Presentations and workshops delivered by employers

Every year our Employability Team organises a STEM Careers Fair, which will give you the opportunity to meet a number of graduate recruiters to gain an insight into graduate jobs and to explore work experience and internship opportunities. Recruiters at previous events have included CERN, L’Oreal, P&G, Unilever, Covance, PwC and Aon.

You’ll also have access to the University’s Careers Centre, which is one of the largest in the country, and you’ll be able to attend the Autumn Graduate Jobs and Internships Fair.

You will have regular meetings with your personal tutor to help support your academic and personal development. You will also have access to Leeds for Life, where you can keep a record of all you have done and achieved, this will help you complete application forms and prepare for interviews in the future.
