Support for international students

Support for International Students

We understand the many opportunities and challenges that being an international student presents for your future career plans and offer tailored support to our students from overseas to allow you to build on your studies here.

As well as having access to all of our central services, you will find information below on the specific support available to you. So whether your future career plan is to look for work or further study in the UK, in your home country, or another country, we can support you to investigate all of the options:

Maximise Programme

Do you want to maximise your chances of progressing on to a graduate job or further study? Our programme of talks and events for international students includes topics such as UK Visa regulations, English language issues in applications, and more. Use Career Connect within MUSE to sign up for our events.

Global Careers Programme

We have a programme of employers from around the world, delivering a mixture of workshops and presentations throughout the academic year. Some will be available on campus and others online through our pioneering new interactive platform. Sign up through Career Connect, available within MUSE.

Asia Careers Fair 2018

Our online fair will take place in March 2018 and will give you the chance to engage with employers from your home country. Last year’s event attracted over 30 employers from China, Malaysia and Singapore and this is set to expand to cover the wider Asia region. Watch out for our promotional material in Semester 2.

Returning To Your Home Country

Our handy Careers Service guides support students and include information on the local job market, major industries and tips on how to get ahead. You can currently find them within our Maximise your masters portal.

Current guides include:

  • China
  • India
  • Malaysia
  • Nigeria
  • Singapore

Our international careers resource supports students looking for international opportunities, including employment, further study, work experience and voluntary work. Countries also include a link to Going Global offering career guides, jobs, placements and an employer database.

We are happy to discuss your options for finding work in the UK after your studies. Further information is also available in our Jobs, placements and work experience section.
