Graduates of the School are equipped with the academic and practical skills needed to respond to the changing needs of the global market place, and proceed to a rewarding career.
Each year we invite a wide range of appropriate employers to the School for a marine-dedicated Careers Fair open only to our students. Throughout your degree, the School encourages and helps students to find summer job placements. We ensure that the development of key competencies and transferable skills required by employers are built into all of our programmes. These features together with the quality of the programmes we offer, and the reputation of the degree enables our graduates to find jobs with relative ease.
The University's Careers Service will work with you from day one to weigh up all your options, assess the best one for you and the best way to get there! We provide an award winning service for our students - one of the largest and best resourced career services in the UK, that enjoys a great reputation locally and nationally.
Our latest initiative, ncl+ ensures that every student has the opportunity to gain valuable and transferable skills, boosting your employability, and enhancing your degree.
For our current students and recent graduates, the School of Marine Science and Technology holds its own Careers Fair which is held in November from 10.00am – 15.00pm in the Lindisfarne Room, Kings Road Centre.
