Futures First

Futures First

Futures First is our employability offer to students. Our students can access career coaching, skills training and special events. Read about the different strands to our offer below.

Employability Hub

The Employability Hub is a dedicated space where students can access careers support and coaching, jobs, and attend skills and employer workshops.

The Hub benefits our students throughout their time at university, whether they're seeking student jobs or preparing for their graduate careers. If you can’t find what you’re looking for – or if you’d rather just talk to someone – pop in and see us at the hub. Our careers support also extends to three years after graduation

Career guidance

Our career consultants offer one-to-one support. Based in the Employability Hub they can help you see your full potential and know what employers are looking for.

We know that building a career is more than mastering CVs and interviews. A lot depends on your approach to the process, how you see yourself and respond to challenges. That's why we bring in industry experts to offer their insights and develop your skills.

Experience

Most graduates nowadays need some work experience to help them stand out. We help you find opportunities that enhance your education and match your aspirations.

Essentials

Our essential skills workshops are run by our careers consultants and experts from industry and focus on crucial skills like writing a winning CV or succeeding at assessment centres.

Professional

You’re part of a new generation who will change the way business is done. We’ll teach you the skills, the secrets and the unwritten rules so that you can reinvent them.

Global

We're an international School so there's a global dimension to everything we do. Even if you don't work overseas, you're going to be working with people from all over the globe. Understanding how other cultures do business makes you more employable. And there are lots of opportunities to expand your horizons from international summer schools and overseas internships to studying another language.

Support for international students
Wherever you want to start your career - in the UK, your home country, or elsewhere - we can help you achieve your goals. That includes finding jobs, advice on immigrations issues and English language support.

Discovery

We bring in a variety of employers and successful alumni to tell you the things only an insider would know about the world of work. Our Discovery events take place year-round and include talks, workshops and drop-ins with industry experts.

Real experience

We help you find opportunities that enhance your education and match your aspirations. For example, on certain courses you may have the opportunity to apply for a company project as part of your degree. If successful, you will have the chance to work with a company on a business issue and make a positive impact in a professional setting. This experience can form the basis of your MSc dissertation which gives you a valuable opportunity to put what you've learned in the classroom into practice.
