What is the Bradford Graduate Programme? 

It's a flexible career planning and job preparation programme. We will speak to you about your progress so far and then provide tailored one-to-one support to help you with your career goals.

It is available to anyone who has graduated from the University of Bradford in the last five years who wants to find work in the UK – whether you are currently unemployed or want to change jobs.

There's no charge for taking part, and the programme is designed to work around your work commitments. We can support you in person, by phone, video meetings or email.
