Dedicated careers support for FirstGeneration+ students

FirstGeneration+ refers to UK undergraduates who are either in the first generation of their family at University, are in receipt of a University maintenance bursary and/or meet a widening participation criteria.

All students should have the chance to thrive in the right career, yet certain features of the graduate labour market can favour people from more privileged backgrounds, and regardless of background, some students find it easier to make the move into graduate employment than others.

So, if you are a Firstgeneration+ student, the Careers Service can offer support to help you to succeed in your career after university along with other students.

1-2-1 support

As a FirstGeneration+ student you will have exclusive access to appointments where you can see the same Careers Consultant each time. Seeing the same consultant means you don’t have to explain everything to a new face every time you come; there’s someone who knows you. Book an appointment on Career Connect via MUSE.

DYF Monthly Newsletter

Each month we will send out our DYF newsletter; this will showcase opportunities available to you from the Careers Service, from the wider university, and from external organisations. See our latest newsletter
