As a postgraduate student you will be offered the opportunity to apply for a postgraduate consultancy project or work experience opportunity. This could add value to your CV once you graduate and may even help to secure you a full-time role in employment.
Employment Personal Tutor
On arrival you will be allocated an Employment Personal Tutor (EPT). The EPT will be on hand to offer guidance about work placements and consultancy projects*, CV and application checks, interview and networking tips and information about any employment and networking events.
The support provided by the EPT complements the more general careers support from the University Careers Service.
*Please note that work placement and consultancy projects (whether in the UK or abroad) may be subject to additional fees, application processes and in some instances there may be a limited number of spaces available.
Postgraduate Consultancy Project
In your third semester you will have the option to undertake a 8-12 week consultancy project, which carries course credits. The application process is similar to if you were applying for a job, as you will undertake an application and interview process.
Please note that consultancy projects (whether in the UK or abroad) may be subject to additional fees and in some instances there may be a limited number of spaces available.
Previous projects have included working within the HR department in a charity, looking at morale and job satisfaction within the organisation and undertaking the production of a business plan for a new product for an eLearning provider.
A number of postgraduate courses within the Faculty of Business and Law offer students the chance to further enhance their employability, by undertaking an extended professional experience of up to 12 months*
*Please note that work experience opportunities may be subject to additional fees, application processes and in some instances, opportunities may be limited.
