Our degrees prepare you for employment after you graduate. We also have opportunities to develop key skills while you study.

We have a Graduate Skills Framework (PDF: 276KB) which was developed with employers. This defines a set of key skills for our students. Together with your degree, these skills will enhance your life beyond university.

What employers are looking for

In addition to your academic work, employers look for evidence of skills and experience. Our degrees accurately reflect the skills employers want. 

Our diverse curriculum, environment and student experience encourage you to:

  • meet personal goals and aspirations
  • do self-directed continuous learning
  • take calculated risks and challenge personal boundaries
  • create cross-cultural relationships

In addition, the ncl+ initiative offers extra-curricular opportunities.

All this helps you to develop knowledge, skills, and opportunities to gain employment when you graduate.

You can read our Alumni Profiles to find out what our graduates have done after completing their degrees.

Careers Service

Our award-winning Careers Service is one of the best, largest and most innovative in the UK.
