All of the Students pages of our website is directly relevant to you, whether you are an international student, or a UK/EU student. However, this section will provide careers related information that may be of specific interest to you.

The Careers and Employability Service aims to support students and graduates in achieving their career plans and works with students to develop their employability at the earliest opportunity.

Whilst we work with academic departments to organise suitable events, such as workshops and employer presentations, you are advised to come to the Careers and Employability Service to find out the range of information, support and opportunities 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.

Try to attend careers presentations, workshops and fairs (see Events) on campus to assist you in making career decisions and in being successful in your applications, and to extend your network of contacts.

Discuss you career ideas with a Careers Adviser at an early stage. You may be able to choose course options, undertake work experience or develop extra-curricular activities which will help you when applying for jobs or for further study. We're here to help have extensive knowledge and information about a wide range of occupations - so come and talk to us.
