Employability

In the latest destinations survey 100% of our graduates entered graduate level employment or further study within six months of graduation. Our graduates are sought after by employers world-wide who recognise that our students have excellent transferable skills, many developed 'Live' in real world settings.

Your career is a priority for us...

In 2010 our school set up the RIBA Student Destinations Survey, a study that tracks the progress of Architecture Graduates across seven UK schools. The recommendations from the survey feed back into our curriculum, helping us to improve the way we teach.

It is important to us that students understand the skills that they develop on our programmes. We are working with the RIBA and other Heads of Schools of Architecture to define exactly what they are. We are also collecting evidence on the value of these skills. This is just one of the ways we impact on debates on the future of the profession and the future of education both nationally and internationally.

The University's Careers Service supports students and graduates up to three years after graduation. Working alongside them, we provide opportunities for our students to:

  • develop their employment skills
  • learn more about options available to them after they graduate
  • find out about job vacancies and placement opportunities while they study here

Opportunities for students.
