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 Service to find out the range of
information, events and support available to you. We 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
