Appointment Information

Please note:

  • Please book your appointment in advance through Handshake Career Centre (except for Drop-in sessions)
  • You cannot get support for academic course work through these appointments. Contact your module tutor directly if you require any help with an assignment. You can also get study skills help from the Academic Skills Advice service.

Keeping records:

  • We encourage you to take your own notes at your guidance appointments. Any notes a career consultant takes in your appointment are stored confidentially and destroyed after two years in accordance with the University confidentiality policy. 
  • We keep a confidential record of your visit on Handshake. This helps us to keep in touch with you and is limited to the nature of your enquiry.
