Careers Service

The University Careers Service

The University's Careers Service can help you understand how to make effective career decisions and prepare for careers which will satisfy your ambitions and use your talents. It offers a high quality integrated guidance, information and vacancy service for all undergraduate and postgraduate students of the University and all students are strongly encouraged to use its facilities.

Studying China, Japan or Korea prepares our students for a career in the world's most dynamic region. Strong economic growth in China, the globalisation of the Japanese economy and the possible future reunification of the Korean peninsula offer massive potential opportunities for people with skills in Asian languages and cultures.

The School also has its own Careers Officer, Dr Nic Tranter, who is there to offer specialist advice on careers, internships, work experience and CV building throughout your degree.

The Careers Service supports students and graduates up to three years after graduation. Students in SEAS have access to a wide range of services and resources through the Careers Services which include:
