Support for Taught Postgraduates

As a taught postgraduate, we can help you make the decisions that are right for you and your future.

Whether you know what you want to do next, or are still unsure, the Careers Service provides the support to help you decide, apply and succeed. This includes:

  • a programme of careers events and seminars running throughout the year
  • the chance to meet employers and alumni
  • information and resources to help you find jobs or postgraduate research
  • opportunities to develop your work experience

Plus individual careers advice and guidance

It's your postgraduate degree, Make it Count

Timetable - Our timetable for postgraduate students will help you plan your year and make the most of what’s on offer.


Make it Count Online - access via your MOLE course list

We understand that you might need slightly different careers support and advice so, we’ve created a programme of events and an online resource designed specifically for taught postgraduates.

Studying for a postgraduate degree can be a challenge - and thinking about what to do afterwards can often seem like an even bigger one! Especially when you’re busy with assignments and deadlines.
