Careers and Employability

You may think it's too early to start thinking about your career, but that's not the case.

What to expect

During the Summer School we'll be hosting a number of sessions which will get you thinking about your future at the earliest possible stage. The Careers Service at Newcastle University offers a lot of support outside of your degree; whether you know exactly what you would like to do after graduation or if you have no idea.

At the Summer School you'll take part in sessions developed by the Careers Service and our Alumni network. This will give you a broad overview of the services available while you're at Newcastle University.

Elements of this module will be a compulsory part of PASS and this will be confirmed on timetables in May.

Since PASS 2019, students have taken part in the following sessions below.

I really enjoyed the Ask The Expert sessions, as I felt it was good to learn about how different people have used their degrees and all the different things I could do.
