Postgraduate Support

Postgraduate Support

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 grauate 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 similiar to if you were applying for a job, as you wil undertake an application and interview procress.

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.
