Careers support


International students can benefit from 1:1 support from Advisers through our range of appointments. We can help you with your career plans, job search strategy and anything else career-related. Our Advisers can also give you feedback on applications for the UK job market.

Please note that we cannot give visa advice or give you a list of companies who will sponsor visas.

Find out more about appointments


We run regular skill events and host UK and international employers on campus or virtually. You can find out what is coming up and book your place in MyFuture.

We also regularly run events exclusively for international students on finding a job in the UK and overseas, on UK recruitment processes and on visa options for working after studies, in collaboration with the Student Immigration Service.

Keep an eye out on MyFuture to see what is coming up and book your place.

More help from the University

The Careers Service is the main provider of help with your career plans, but here are some other support services that provide other relevant help and support:

Immigration and visa advice

Staff at the Careers Service are not trained to give immigration advice. To discuss any visa/immigration issues, contact the Student Immigration Advisers.

English language support

The Careers Service can help you with your CVs and applications, but can’t proofread and correct your documents.

You may be able to access help from the Academic Skills Centre (ASC). One-to-one tutorials are available free of charge from the ASC for current students. These can be used for checking documents such as your CV or covering letter. See the ASC website for further details.

Part-time work and volunteering

Students' Union - SU Jobs

Looking for a part-time job? SU Jobs can help you to find vacancies within the university and the local area. They also provide useful information on tax and applying for a National Insurance number.

Students' Union – SU Volunteering Office

Volunteering is an excellent way to make friends, develop skills and experience, and support good causes. The Volunteering Office can support you in deciding what to do and finding volunteer opportunities.
