Much of this website will be of benefit to you. Whilst we work
closely with some departments and their Masters students, you may
like to come to the Careers and Employability Service to find out

are located on the third floor of University House on the Hull
campus and in the Library Area of the Scarborough campus.
There are limited opportunities which specify that a Masters

have developed. In any application, focus on the skills,
knowledge and experience relevant to the job.
