Structured to work around you, the programme is:
- part-time, taken over seven months

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.
Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.
This programme provides a bridge into the world of work for many graduates who are not quite ready to make the transition either due to their confidence levels, skills or having found it difficult to secure “graduate level” employment often due to a lack of work experience.
