What we support you with:

Help with finding the right course to study 

Our qualified and experienced Careers and Information Advice and Guidance team are here to help you make the best choice for you. They will talk you through your options, including different subjects and levels of study, whether a course has specific entry requirements, opportunities for progression and future careers.

If it’s been a long time since you’ve written a CV or covering letter, or you never have, don’t worry- we’re here to help. Our advisors work closely with course tutors to develop a strong knowledge base around the potential careers associated with each curriculum area. Depending on your course you may have a class workshop on CV writing, applying for a job or writing a cover letter. Our Careers Advisors can provide more specific personalised advice. 

Applying to University

If you want to go to university but are unsure about what to study or where, we’re here to help. Our team offers UCAS workshops covering the application process and how to write that stand-out personal statement. Book an individual appointment to discuss your options and next steps.
